My M3 is an 05 ZCP, SMG, 17k miles, NAV - totally loaded - its actually a nice deal and quite a nce incentive they offered me.well, on the m5board, most of us will say get the m5.
My only thought is with a buyout of $35k, that sounds like an expensive M3! Assuming a 3 year lease of about a grand a month?
I agree 100% but there are NO M5's around for me to drive. These cars are a little harder to find than I thought, so my local dealer is working on finding one for me.I would say go ahead and drive a few M5's and then decide...they are totally different cars especially if your M3 is SMG...two totally different animals.
The best advice though is to get out there and drive a few and then decide what is best for you.
Yeah, this is my 2nd M3 and I am "growing out of it" a little. My wife and family hate to drive in it with the ZCP, so we always end up taking my wife's Buick, er uh E350 Mercedes :blabla:. In the M5 I should be able to move people around much easier and get to drive the family around morego M5 . The M5 is a car you that can grow with you (example family, luxury) whereas the M3 is fun but a car you may grow out of.
