There's a lot of good info in this thread, and I'd like to add the fact that a lot of BMW enthusiasts want to drive the latest model. In this case a lease makes more sense.

I'm also not a fan of the F8X series M cars. That inline 6 just doesn't have the right sounds or response. The S65 is such a good motor, pulls strong and sounds amazing and man 8 ITB and a 3 way Intake system means ultimate response whenever. Hell even my N54 in the 335i will make just as much power and sounds beautiful! The S58 after all is based on the N54. Just not sure how they got it to sound all funky. Oh well haha. I'm also having way to much fun in my M3, plan on going to buttonwillow soon and really take her for a rip and see how she does!

Even if I had a 911 or something of the sort in my garage I would at least split the time in both evenly and have way more miles than that lol.


This is my second e92 got it a few months ago. Actually traded the other 13 M3 for a 911, now I have both

My neighbor has a red 996 turbo S convertible. The only other 996 worth buying is the GT3. I got 991 GTS, not a fan turbos

I got a ton of offers from BMW dealerships wanting to buy my 2011 M3 and put me in a new 2017 M3 and keep my payment the same (some were even lower payments). I can see the appeal of it for the average joe BMW driver (e.g., not the people who are on forums like these).

Well said. I'd turn them away.

E9X is like the Rolex of BMW's, the value will only increase. I plan to keep mine forever barring it getting totaled some how.

A big reason a lot of cars for sale are at that mileage is because of leases imo. 36 month or so lease could put the cars at 40-50k miles. If taken care of though, its almost the perfect mileage to buy at imo. Fresh enough to be essentially brand new in terms of exterior/interior (again if taken care of) but old enough to have depreciated a good amount. My dad got his ~40k mile space grey/fox red ZCP 6MT slicktop for like $40-something k I believe. Car still is like new and hasn't had any expenses outside of fluids, filters, and tires.
