Life is too short to wait, just lease one and move one. Lease another in two years.

No BMW is worth agonizing and waiting months for. There is always something better tomorrow.

Besides I am not sure 45 more HP is worth the problem headaches that will occur by BMW changing the engine design once again. They are not exactly known for reliability.

BUy the M5 535i parts are about the same price as M5 parts, so why not go M5 if your gonna pay an arm and a leg anyway. ALso turbo cars are awesome, moding them is cool, but the reduced reliability that comes from modding them is not cool.

If the M5 is ever a viable option one should opt for the m5 everytime.

It isn't a new engine so I'm not worried about reliability.

Patience isn't my thing and if I have a car and a better version comes out it bugs me, which is why I tend to refresh vehicles every two years or less.

I am a power/performance guy so to me the wait is worth it this time since a few months will save me a few years of "what ifs".

Wow, I was just thinking about an M3 sedan. Congratulations!!
I'll get with Adrian in a couple of months if I decide to go new again.

Thanks. I feel like this will give me exactly what I want at a price I can live with. I decided I wanted a coupe this time since wife now has an x5. M3 sedan would be very nice for you.
