ARGH, ambushed by another buyer while asleep, darn!!!!

In the market for a E90 330i with higher milage. Finally found the PERFECT example in Virginia, Sparkling graphite metallic, leather, 6spd, sport ,premium etc.... It had over 70k miles, in just over 2 years, but stoneguard, and a 100k factory maintenance upgrade and warranty was a huge piece of mind.

I have the same luck with girls. The BMW was supposed to in part change that I've learned a few lessons from this. I mull over things too much. I built so many Excel spreadsheets doin heavy modeling on total cost of ownership residuals, and which particular car (was/do have a few prospects) would provide the best bang for the buck.

Thing is, I was 95% sure I wanted it, but wanted to sleep on it pray, and wait till after church on Sunday to say, "I do."

On a positive note, there are other fish in the sea. Usually, the one you end up with i much better than the one you lost.

Maverick once said, "when you're up there, you don't have time to think. You think, you're dead." He was right

hopefully you aren't looking for a girl with the same traits... (used with high miles...). sorry couldn't resist like you said, the one you get will be better anyways, and when you see it hopefully you won't NEED to sleep on it, cause you'll know. good luck with the hunt!

nothing like getting a new one though You could lease a pretty loaded 328 for good monthly payments. (Just a suggestion, no flaming needed)

Special Thanks to AU335

Ben - have you considered that this was an answer to your prayers? I mean, really, it sounds like your religious, so if you were truly praying and asking God about it...and it was the right car for you - don't you believe it would still be available?

I think the miles were a bit high - I think it might be a blessing in disguise - good luck with the hunt!
