Buying advice on newer 3-series coupes?
Currently have a 2002 530i. Love it but now looking for more predictable car expense... 2008 or newer, Sport package, CPO... maybe a change to a 3-series coupe.
Would really appreciate opinions and experiences, especially regarding the different engine options.
I love the inline six on my current 530. It's smooth, powerful and has proved reliable. So am tempted to stick with that on a newer model. But what about the turbo engines on the 3s? Recall hearing not-so-good things about them in the past (fast but prone to repair trouble) but some say BMW have resolved that now?
Oh, and then there's the polarizing run-flats debate (tolerate-them or hate-them?)... Any coupe advice and counsel, pluses and minuses, positives and negatives, all gratefully received. Thanks much.
