He offered to take over my lease payments and give me cash for most of the options I had on the car (PROcede and wheels).
I said, "well, that might be a perfect opportunity to get the coupe I originally wanted."
And to be honest, the fact I was a bit nervous about the fuel pump failures and oil cooler retrofit, made the choice easy too.
The new car will come with the new fuel pump, oil cooler from the factory, and a few other upgraded things I liked. Also helped that the coupe is a bit lighter, more rigid and less common, and will have more interchangeable parts with the E92 M3.
So it worked out for the best. Plus I have two other sedan cars already anyway, made no sense for me to have 3.
Sounds like a good move.
