Is the M model worth the extra cash over the standard 3 litre?
Wouldn't be using it as the daily driver, just as a weekend thrill machine so less concerned about running costs, more about depreciation....
Any input welcome!
I had a 2003 3.0i and a 2008 Z4M. The M is the best choice for a weekend car. Both cars have harsh suspension and the M is a bit firmer but doesn't have RFTs either.
There is little price differential between the later 3.0si and M cars; go for the M. As a daily I would probably pick the 3.0si, 40mpg on a motorway run...out on hoon though the M is very quick and of course has the diff.
I reckon the M will depreciate much less. You could pick up a Sepang for a good price back when I had one but I think fashions have changed a little since.
