I know of a few Porsche enthusiasts but did not see that many BMWs in and around Zurich etc. Will be looking real hard next time I am in Switzerland (Or is it htat the car gatherings are full of the Isuzus that I see in the picture - just kidding). Are you in the Geneva or Zurich area.
the 2.8 engine is not good enough for me but is a fine and refined engine - I prefer my wife's car - actually can you get a used M3 with a lot of miles. I liked my wife's M3 so much (bought used at 14K miles) that I can wait to exchange my 328 (bought new) now.
99 E46 328i sport (mine)
and 98 E36 M3 (wife)
and considering either new M coupe as extra car OR new M3 to substitute 328i
It seams that I just sold my ///M Roadster. Huh... what a sad day !!! Can't wait to get my next "M" !
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" ???
But let's not forget 3 years of pure fun excitement and pleasure with my Euro ///M Roadster. I still love this car... what an amazing powerful machine ! I'd love to keep it but unfortunately I need more space and especially more than 2 seats. On the other hand I don't want 2 cars again. I was perfectly happy with one car. I'll miss these days of freedom... Oh no - I think I'm getting older *grin* !
