Till I take delivery of my E46 M3 (hopefully asap...) I need a spare car. My dealer told me that he could give me a 98' BMW 528i, Cosmosblack, fully equipped incl. Leather, Xenon, on-board Phone and all options one can imagine...
I have to buy the car but my dealer will buy it back from me for a fixed price when my new M3 is ready for delivery. Like this, it would only cost $2'900 for 8 month ! I believe this sounds like a very good deal. What's your opinion... "go" or "no go" ???
Man, I wish I could find a dealer who'd do something like this. I sold my '98 M3 in April because I'm planning to buy the E46 M3 and because I was afraid the 330ci would kill the resale value of the US E36 M3. Now I'm driving a '91 Accord =).
Not sure how things work in Switzerland, but if you can get the buy-back price in writing I'd jump on it - $2900 US for 8 months in a loaded 528i is cheap for a lease.
