This is my first posting. I am looking to purchase either a 2006 M3 convertible or a 2007 335i convertible, both with 6 speed manual. Looking at cars.com and autotrader.com, I have found a reasonable M3 for $35K and a 335i for about $40K. Any thoughts? Thanks.
Thanks for the really fast replies. I see that you have 7,526 posts, and probably have driven numerous BMW's, so I value and appreciate your opinions. Both the used cars that I am looking at have about the same mileage. I plan on keeping the car for many years and only putting on 2000-5000 miles per year during the summer months. I don't really need the hardtop, since I'll have the top down most of the time. Does the M3 perform that much better than the 335i? I would like to buy the car soon, during the cold winter months, because I'll probably get the best deal. Thanks again for your help.
