Next car same price range 335... What to do

That time is coming .. My lease is ending. I want to be in the same price as my 335 coupe. I was leaning towards a 2011 335 coupe with m tech and all. I was possibly thinking audi s4, but i just dont know! What do you guys think?

Test drove a S4. Very nice car, smooth power, handled great. Interior was a couple notches higher than bimmer. The one I drove had the optional alcantara, just awesome. Alcantara is no extra cost either.

So you will be getting a N55 if you get another 335i, right? Honestly go test drive a S4, I think you will really like it.

+1 on the S4, if you're bored of going for another 335i, get that instead

No need for me to repeat what everyone else is saying, other than add that this engine is very capable of 500hp no sweat.

I don't think a M3 is in the same price range as the 335/S4 unless you are talking about a used M3

I'd rather get a used M3 rather than another 335. That is boring.

One thing you must mentally prepare for when making that jump is gas millage, insurance, and rubber.

I get about HALF the fuel efficiency of my e90 325i. Not to sound like a nanny or anything, but it is substantial.

i don't see how you can decided without a test drive, go test drive some competitive cars in the price range back to back so you can really feel the difference and see what you like better, probably i wouldn't get the same car again unless it's a new body, but it's up to your taste obviously

I am definitely goin to have to test drive the competition. Thanks for input guys! I am addicted to the simple speed and tune with the n54 335. Thats why i was leaning towards another one, but with the whole n55 engine im looking into something else possibly. I don't want to buy out my lease i want something fresh, six speed this time and a different color...
