Should I get my second BMW?

Hello all,

New to BMW ownership. Did ED in late September and received my f30 328i sport only last week.

I've owned my s2000 for very close to 7 years now. In that time I've purchased two other cars and have sold them both because I didn't enjoy them too much. I don't think the answer is modifying the car because I really have been happy with the way it looks and feels. I even detailed it again last week.

The thought of selling it came back to mind upon redelivery. I like the luxury and would like to own an e46 m3. Truth be told I have always been attracted to that m3. I have wanted it for several years. It was supposed to be the successor to the s2000 but it never worked out.

There are times I want it immediately and then there are times I just feel disgusted thinking of selling the s2000. It feels like a member of my family.

The f30 is a shared vehicle and the m3 just like the s2000 would be exclusive to me. It would become my everyday vehicle. So the argument of using the f30 daily and keep the s2000 for the weekends may not apply.

Anyone ever sell a car and then miss it incredibly?

I'm in the same boat but with the 1m/e92 m3. Everyone I know who has sold their s2k has regretted it. My s2 has been absolutely bulletproof for 10 years and is a riot, things I can't say I've heard about BMW ownership in general. Since Ive developed a new found love of both the 1M/m3 in the past 12 months I'm sure I will buy one of the two next but I won't be selling my s2000. Good luck with your decision!

Yes! Same here as well--I have heard everyone regrets it. Unfortunately I cannot keep both the s2000 and m3 if I purchase it. I want to keep both. However as time goes on so do the clean lower mileage e46s.

Good luck with your decision as well.

First world problems we all have.

Dad has s2k and I love it but I do like an e46 M3 more. The conv is nice and the balance is amazing on the s2k but the overall feel and quality of the e46 over the s2k really does it for me. I also think it looks better even though the s2k with the 2.2L and facelift looks great too and much better than the 2.0 s2k IMO?

I would get an E46 M3, but in 6 speed and not the SMG. I think the car would be more fun with a manual.
