My 98 M3 lease ends shortly. Residual is $34,500 - the price of a new Lexus I300. What should I do, buy the M3? Turn it in (I will owe a $3,000 penalty for excess miles (it now has 40,000)? Or buy a new 328i, the new M3 at $50,000 is too rich for my blood!
Also, does anyone have any advice on dealing with BMW? Can I buy the car for less? Will they eat the miles if I buy a new one?
Lastly, is there anything else out there for around $35K besides the used M3 or new Lexus I300?

Thanks for comments on any or all of the above!
