Ok guys, I do not know under what category to put it under so I will place it on both the E46 and M5 Boards.

Here is the dilemma. I currently have a 1994 318I Jet Black which is my baby. I am in the process of buying a new BMW. Now my dream car is the M5 and I actually have the means to get it (2000-2003). But for practicality's sake, as in insurance and worrying about parking and people f*cking with it, I am leaning towards buying a 2004 330Ci with the works.

Should i give up on my dream and go with the "safe" 330CI or just go for the M5.

Speaking of the M5, does anybody know what I should look for in terms of mileage for 2000-2003 M5s and the costs that would correlate with it. For exampe, I saw a 2000 M5 with the works with 30K selling for $62K.

Hope I can hear some good advice from you guys/girls.

Never give up the dream, you won't be satisfied otherwise. Go for the M5.

Been there, done that...

get the M5, and you wont EVER have to worry about upgrades. just gas and tires. Id go with the M5. stick with your dream, and nothing less.

white 330ci is an unknown quantity at this point
62k seems like a lot for a 4 year old M5.

maybe go in between the two like an M3 or a 545 6speed
