Considering selling the 335

So yeah I've been thinking of selling the 335... unfortunately my heart belongs to another.

She happens to be a Z4 M . Please help me come back to my senses.

DO IT! Z4M's a very nice ride. Don't see them on the road as often as the 3 series.

With that kind of coyne I refuse to compromise on looks, that's just me...

Here's my reasoning.

Pros:

- No car payments (I would buy the Z4M outright)
- Faster a little (feels much faster)
- Convertible (maybe it's a mid life crisis at 28 but I have a thing for verts now)
- Small 2 seater (always wanted one)
- NA (sorry but getting tired of turbos)
- Both cars are out of warranty but IMO the Z4M is more reliable plus would have less miles than the 335
- Something new getting bored with the 335
- Less depreciation since its used

Cons

- More cash up front
- Used vs my 335 which was bought new
- Little to no tech in the Z4M (I like tech, but it breaks)
- 335 is much more comfortable
- Just put new tires on the 335
- A little less MPG
- Risk of the unknown (my 335 is meticulously maintained)
- The Z4 looks pretty outdated compared to the 335

message btm, he made this switch 1-2 months ago. He loves it, but it might be cause the car is a lot more penis shaped than the 335.

Well nothing wrong with driving a big penis. Matches the one in my pants.

if it was the new z4 M it would be another story, the old z4 is SO ugly compared to a "modded" 335.

Up to you. I would miss the practicality of the 335i somewhat

Considering sell mine as well...and only owned it 9days.

CPO '08. Day 5, Rear View mirror fell off. Had to replace window for some reason. Drove it out of service and check engine light came on. Wastegate issue. I've had it for 9days and driven it, oh, 3 1/2 days.

No reason not to, if you don't need a back seat.
