There's a bronze platinum in the parking garage at work. I pretty much admire it from afar every time it's there... There's a new white Z4 softtop too.

Hehehehe it helps that my boss just told me that I'll be getting a nice little bonus on July 1 which after taxes will stll suffice my for downpayment.

Congrats on the bonus! Since you are waiting for the bonus as the down payment I assume you are adding another car to your line up. :rocks:

As amazing as an AW w/Red E93 sounds, I highly recommend a test drive of the Z4 if this will be a second car. I am currently driving one as a loan car and think it's truly a fun car ro drive.

Obviously, you can't go wrong with either choice and I'm sure Ryan will take care of us all!

Thanks, no actually it'll just be my dd. I don't need 2-cars. I'll try to sell my 30xi or take it to Carmax as I just can't imagine anyone wanting a 2.5-yr old BMW with over 50K on it. Although, I did extend the maintenance and warranty last week before the price increase.

Damn that's a lot of miles for such a short period! I don't want to know the distance of your commute!

If you only want one car, I agree with the E93.

It's currently 60-miles/day plus a few more to go to lunch or taking care of s company business. I thought my mileage was bad, but someone has over 50K already.

At least you have the right car for the job and I'm glad to hear when people actually utilize their modes of transportation.

Part of the reason why I got the e90 originally, since I spend so much time in the car. My Accord only had 70K miles on it and could have gone another 70K as it was in excellent shape.

Also our company may be expanding soon, so I may be on the road even more next year or the year after.

I hope your work place is offering you a car allowance or a comp for usage. Either that or offer you a heafty salary that easily covers all expenses. For a 60 mile commute, I'm sure either option is the case.

No sales at all for 3rd quarter? Does this apply to all coupes?

Well I get the standard IRS rate for work miles and they do pay for my GG bridge toll/Fastrak which is about $100/mth.
