The M5 and 335 are very far apart. totally different cars. If you can afford to take the hit on the 335 which you will since you just bought it. just go for it. The M5s are moving slow and you may get a good deal. I think they are doing 3.9% financing until the end of the month.

Ive been looking around for cars and have been to 4 dealers in 2 weeks. Every dealer had 1 or 2 M5s sitting on the lot that they couldnt move.
They said that the best sellers right now are the 335, 535 and 550 sports.

I came from a E60 M5.. I would highly recommend NOT doing it. The 335 is a MUCH MUCH better car. Do a search on my E60 M5 thread. Ended up lemon lawing it just like many on the M5 board. Just not reliable, horrible gas guzzler (6 mpg around town and 140-160 mile cruising range on a tank) SMGIII is a disaster, and a lot of the motors were burning a quart of oil betwen 500-1000 miles. Not a good sign. Much happier with the 335i. BTW, the M5 feels like a pig even in sports mode and EDCII. You will also be a little dissapointed with the torque around town. You don't get much of a push until after 4500-5000rpm as opposed to the instant torque of the 335i.. (of course proceded and intercoolers make an incredible difference too!)

No...don't get an M5. Be satisfied with the 335i, it is a great vehicle. If the ride is too harsh, put on smaller wheels (20'' is crazy). Did you get the sport package? Did you drive the car before buying? If it is too smal why didn't you get a 530 or 535? Just wondering....

I have 19 on the car and they ride better then the stock 18 RFT. its not dropped either.
yes I test drove it. and I got it casue I had three vehicles and it was not going to be driven everyday, but my wife said having three vehicles was dumb and I obugh ther and x5 and with the price of the x5 I dont need an extra vehicle.
anyway we will see what happens I guess. I have time before I do it if I do it so lets see what comes up in the next few months.
dont hate me but I am thinking the 335 might be good to keep and get a P-car to put in the garage, heh. would like to see the new gt2

The X may seem like a veritable bargain compared to thE cost of the GT2

if you're not on the short list for a Gt2 and you've haven't owned a Gt3, GT3RS, turbo or Carrera GT, good luck getting it..

I just left porsche and I could get on the list but I don't think I like porsche. sorry
I drove a carrera and honestly didnt feel better then my 335 and didnt feel faster either.
they had a turbo but , couldnt drive it and it was specked out to $160k, the dude that ordered it backed out and they kept his $10k deposit so anyone interested can get $10k off, good deal I guessm if you like all the crazy options he put on it.
I guess I need a run in a Turbo or gt3 anyone around me have one?

Old Guy has a new GT3 (I think) and B-Line has a Turbo.

Don't do it. If you really want to go the ///M5 route, buy an E39, trust me on this one.

I just got back from driving the carrera then I drove the z4m and I would buy the z way before I bought the porsche, the z is very fun, and may be in my future and jsut keep the 335, two cars instead of one m5 probably better, doesnt solve the issue but two is better then one right?
