    Keep 335i or trade to 1M?

    Gentlemen, Ladies, I am faced with a dilemma and would like your help/opinions.
    A while back I was considering trading in my 2009 E90 335i M Sport for an M3, however due to financial constraints I wasn't able to do so.
    With the 1M coming out this Spring, I have really began to consider giving up my lease to someone else and picking up a 1M.

    My current car (2009 E90 335i M Sport) is a 3 year lease with 1.5 years left at $650/month with a $3k down payment.
    Should I give up my lease and get a 1M? I love my current car however the automatic transmission has really begun to get on my nerves and the open differential doesn't leave me confident enough pushing the car to it's limits.

    If I keep my car I will get KW V2 and that will be the end of my mods.
    If I get the 1M I'll for sure get KW V3 and transfer over my current N54 goodies.

    Thanks in advance,

    If you are more interested in driver interaction and fun factor, yes, you should.

    I'd keep the 335. I like more room. And if those 1Ms are limited production, dealers are going to be having absurd markups....still going to be in that 650 range?

    There are CPO M3's for mid-$40k, 1M money or less.

    I would much rather have the V8 sound.

    I think 335 is the best option... It offers wide space...

    Keep your 335i, just get a LSD and a few more mods :thumbsup:
    On the other hand the 1M is an M car, I would probably go for it.

    That's until they decide to ramp it up, and release a cab, and then milk it for whatever they can.

    It was supposed to be 1000 only, not it is 3500... not exactly limited.
