Just traded the 335 for an M5

But I am having cold feet, almost feel like I betrayed the car. I am anthropomorphizing it but that's how I feel. I've never felt that for another car.

No worries, e60 M5 is a nice ride indeed.

Well done.



Probably got a killer deal too with the F10 M5's just around the corner.

I'm sure you'll love the car but I'd be most concerned about maintenance costs. Did you buy new, used, CPO?

assuming you didn't need to sell the farm to get it, i'm guessing you'll soon be very satisfied with the M5.

Exactly, only normal for anyone to have cold feet about the maintenance and insurance, easily a multi ten thousand dollar purchase differential. Who knows when the time is right for such a purchase, but then again, it's an M! OP prolly got a nice bonus last year.

Had to go for for an xtra 2 years though. Diff between my trade-in value and the M5 Purchase price was $24K.

New would have been something like 335xi + $50K for a leftover 2009.

Did you make a spur-of-the-moment decision?

I feel that way if I do that. Then after a while, I get used to it, and then I feel fine. Unless I realized I made the wrong decision, lol.

But seriously, I have a feeling you'll love the M. It's a M.

Has one and sold it to buy my current 997S......as much as I disliked the gas mileage and the quirkiness of the SMG, I wish I still had it. Just not feeling the Porsche like I thought I would.
