    Potential M3s

    Help me find/pick a M3. At first I wanted a '11+ AW DCT CF roof with all the bells and whistles (Competition, Premium, Convenience, Nav). Now I'm considering this

    http://www.swapalease.com/lease/deta...x?salid=794244

    which would be the lightest DCT configuration.

    Thoughts? Am I going to regret not going with all the luxuries I'm used to?

    I can't stand getting into a BMW that I have to out the key in. It's dumb. You don't even do that in a Nissan. Also non logic 7 stereos suck. If you are already used to those things you will not like a car that doesn't have them. And those are only 2.

    Agree 100%. Why did you pick up a maxima? cvt na v6...don't get me wrong the older models were decent. Just not a fan of the 7th gen or maxima.org

    I'm saving some cash, recovering financially from the Evo and planning my next move. I'm trying to move to Germany so that plays in it too. Short list is A45 AMG (not sold in the US), Beetle R, or a BMW, M2 or 435i.

    ^agreed, NAV is an eyesore in my opinion. The "double hump" dash completely throws off the nice lines of the regular dash. Now comfort access & logic 7 on the other hand, mandatory.

    Ever since I got to play with the new navi with the touchpad. I can't stand the old nav now. If I would look for another E9x M3, I would definitely get it without navi.

    A stripper E9x M3 would be nice, you just won't be able to get them like that any longer.

    I don't think you would regret that car but I like the bells and whistles personally.

    I have everything but the keyless start package. iDive is laclustre but effective. I love the loaded features and the entertainment system is incredible. Don't settle for an optionless wonder.

    For sure. Need to buy more property while rates are as low as can be. Plus I want a flashier car to distance myself and show people what's up anyway.
