Should I trade my '03 540i for '03 M3??

My 540 is steptronic and M3 manual....my car has 9100 miles and M3 has 6000miles....I have to pay 2900 extra for the M3. What do you think?? Crazy or good deal?

Don't base your decision on our answers. Do what YOU feel is right!

I'd personally go with the M3. Unless you are gonna dump the 5er on 20z. Otherwise M3 for sure!

I needed the extra room, that's why I chose the 540i, but if you have no need for room & want something sportier then go for the M3

It depends what your preferences are,some people just need more space thats why i went for the M5 instead of the M3.You might miss that V8 also but otherwise you got a good deal if you ask me.Maybe try to get a good deal on an M5??

well, I thought the 540 would be big enough to meet my needs but it isn't that much bigger than the M3....with either one, I can't carry much with it. I'm gonna get a truck for my everyday driving/work vehical and M3 for weekends.

lets just say, i'm you right now.. So what will I do? i'll trade it in for sure heheh since I don't need extra space.

Basically, it's up to you, what your preferences are.. do you like huge space? less space? 2 seater? coupe? more power etc. etc..
