In Reply to: stay with 2.8 roadster or trade for M-coupe? posted by joshp on February 11, 2000 at 08:04:02:

Now, I LOVE my car. I love driving it on the street and I love driving it in autocrosses. Had some work done a few months ago, and was lucky enough to get a 2.8 Z3 as a loaner.

Sorry to say - I was unimpressed. Power, handling, amenities (!), I just didn't like it. Nowhere near a s good a car as mine.

Now, power wise? Maybe my dislike was because I hated having a similar car with less power. Maybe. The next week I got a new 328, which I now consider to be one of the best cars I have ever driven. I hated the old 3 series, too.

I would go for the M Coupe!

: Here's the dilemma: I have a beautiful 98 2.8, black & tan, with Dinan air & chip. Brand new tan top, replaced on warranty (premature wear). 17K miles. A beaut. But I've been craving the M coupe. I've found 2 used ones at dealers in the area. Both under 10K miles. One is asking 34,900, the other 36,000.

: Spring is on the way. Top down weather will beckon. But that balls-to-the-walls coupe! What do you guys think? And, in a trade in, what do you think I'll get for my rig, what price should I offer for the coupe?

: Thanks!
