Unfortunately if the car in question is unreliable, then you're pretty much out of luck and you'll have to pay to play.
Yea def realizing that now. Thing is I do not want to own the M235i for 10-12 years but an M3/M4 is my dream car and that I would not mind owning for a long period having at least one car paid off is a must in my future. I figured leasing the M235i would make sense for 2-3 years but I feel that leasing is basically like renting a car now.
Thanks for sharing your insight!
