In Ca, you could actually lemon the car and get your money back starting from your 3k mark.

Not sure on laws from your state.


Weekend car? Get a Boxster or Z4 35i. Drop top + power + handling

M5 isn't a weekend car... it's more of a badass DD.

The M5 and my 335i are weekend cars. I have a daily driver Honda.
PLus my 335i is fully modded and fully catless and wastes a lot of gas aswell.

Keep the advice coming thanks a lot guys.
Well if that's the case and its just for a weekend car then dump the 335 since its been in an accident and get the CPO 2010 M5 and also sounds like your heart's set on it as well.

No go, that would be cool but no lemon law, needs to be more extensive.

I mean when i say weekend car, i mean going out car with friends and family, long trips etc.

I def want a sedan, i have alot of friends and family..

Yea my heart has been leaning towards it just from everyone telling me not worth to keep the 335i after the accident, which seems to be the most important fact.

F30 335?

New with full warranty.

The December incentives seem pretty nice. $3500 holiday cash + loyalty (I think $750?)

Used smg transmissions from a yard aren't that bad actually. Less than a quality set of aftermarket wheels.

I hate the interior to be honest, and id take my E90 LCI Mtech over a F30 any day, in terms of power of the N54 aswell.
