New car dilemma.. z4m or z4 3.5is

Howdy all..

I would appreciate some comments and insights to my new car purchasing dilemma..

I've been searching for a new "toy" to play with in my retirement years. I've been watching the Z4M market for some time. I recently found a 2007 Z4M red on red with 35k miles from a private seller. Just in the past week my local BMW deal got a Z4 3.5is in or trade with 24k miles, red on black. The problem I'm having is the pricing is very close, within $3k between the two. I really like the Z4M manual for it's back to the basics driving experience. But the 3.5is has the DCT and more modern features... What to do.. and no I can't afford to buy both.. haha

Thanks for your guidance.

Z4 m vs z4 35is

I had the z4m and then got the 35is. I like it much better and after i got dinan stage two, the car is so fast you can't believe it. I like the looks better and the convert hard top is great

Well my wife and I decided on the Z4 3.5is. It's a beautiful car and runs like a scared cat..
Plus, my wife can drive the DCT auto, but I had to warn her to take it easy on the acceleration or she might be in the ditch.

PS: I'll get a Z4M sooner or later..

I am just going through the same process. started with an M Coupe, then 3.0si coupe, then z435i, now I m on the hunt for some specific want and don't want options. almost bought a 22000 mile Z4M in gray for 22K yesterday, I kinda kick myself but really want the convertible hardtop.

Congrats on your car!
