Weasel will become famous soon enough
If I hadn't bought the X5 I'd still be driving it. Man do I miss driving that little thing. I can't wait till my friend has the money to fix it so I can drive it again. (I will be doing the work on it to)

Ok, so here is the main question - would you trade 02 525i in perfect like new condition, with 109K miles, sport & premium package for 98 BMW M3 with 124k miles in exceptional condition too...
I cannot decide.

They are both nice cars, I put my mom in a 528i a couple years back. They are both worth about the same, the 5 worth about $1k more but the M3 more of a collectors car so it can pull more in a sale. I'd likely do the trade asking the guy with the M3 if he would cover the title swap costs. Just check on the service records and pay attention to the transmission when you test drive... don't want to find out he was selling to avoid costly problems.

you can probably call into the dealer too and have them check the VIN, although they cant release the records to you, they will be able to see if there is a reoccurring problem.

Update... He emailed me again - $10K for that M3
I really like that car but $10K??? Manheim has them for around 7-8 K but his color is amazing He also provided CarFax - its clean.

So what do you think - should I give him 9K and have a nice toy in my garage next to X ?
