I'd rather NOT get the car yet, save about few more thousand (it looks like you might be able to, since you are able to get still a very expensive car so few thou can be saved in time) and get a M3 SEDAN. M3 coupe to me is meaningless 5-8k more for a same car...
thats for me, since contemplating IS means you want more performance and performance is maximized in M3. since you had to shell out a lot of money anyways, why not a bit more (seems your family is well off so why not) and get a M3. My personal choice, if I had money like you and was contemplating...
lastly, if I could only have two choices? (xi or is) OF COURSE THE IS.
Thank you for your opinion, but the m3 for lease was hit mid- 800, i had gotten my car for 628 a month and the rest would have had to come out of my pocket and then the insurance
would come out of my pocket and being that i am an 18 year old with no job ill stick with riding on my parents for now until necessary...
