It is tough deciding, isn't it ?? The M is a hot car, but you'll be pleased with your 2.3. All Z's are great..The Ultimate Driving Experience !!!
: I had a major anxiety attack today. I have a '99 2.3 Z3 scheduled to be built in October. So today, I stopped by the dealership to pick up some literature and as I enter the showroom, I'm greeted by a '99 M Roadter, Dakkar Yellow with Black interior. Not my first choice in exterior color but still an impressive car. Relax, I thought, it's probably sold. Wrong. It's here, now, and available at MSRP or just slightly below. Its 65 degrees and sunny and I don't want to wait until the snow flies to take a cruise with the top down. BMW credit has already given me the ok. I could drive this stud of a car home this afternoon. I start sweating profusely and dig for my insurance company's phone number. I'm in a major M frenzy. The insurance rate for an M brings me slightly back down to earth. The monthly car payment, which looks a lot like my mortgage payment, further deflates me. All of a sudden, the car looks like a giant bumblebee and I bolt out of the showroom gasping for air leaving a heartbroken salesman chasing me and saying 'everybody pays sticker price for an M!'
: There should be a warning label on those things.
: Still car-less.
