Worst case....if the 335d starts acting up down the road, then your hand is forced to trade it in and take a bath. But for now, with a good running car...I say keep it and keep racking up miles on it.
Amen. My sentiments exactly. I am even going out on a limb and investing some of my nest egg on expensive mods. I have owned some semi-nice cars in the past but this 335d is the most interesting combination of fun. But hey, I am retired and may not have the same life concerns as others who are troubled by some of the forum posts.
