    Now I need a new car!! It was a 135i that was lemoned and BMW is buying it back. IBSSABIPRO. It was an AWESOME car when it was working and I still love it. To tell you the truth I would have just turned around and bought a new one but there are a lot more options nowadays.

    wastegate failure, adaptive headlight failures, fuel pump failures, and quite a few more.

    They saw me on the BMW boards and emailed me offering to buy the car back :bigthumb: They took the initiative. The thought never even crossed my mind.

    The newest ones being built have a new Fuel Pump, which before was one of the main problems with the "35"s.

    More options? How many more gay cars are really out there now than when the 1-series came out of the closet?

    I was looking Camaro SS or new Shelby but they are way too flashy for me. They're awesome cars but they scream "Look at me!". Something in the 50-60K range. I test drove an S5 a few times but it seemed too floaty and boring. Its a gorgeous car but other than that its boring. Its like a hot girl that can't kiss.

    G37S is a nice competitor in that segment that you can try out, or you can't really go wrong with a 135i/335i again

    I was tempted to flog her like crazy today but the thought of me totalling it the day before didn't sit well. I did go for a nice leisurely drive through the mountains though.

    :werd: I was stunned too. Considering the car has already taken a 13000 depreciation hit since I bought her. I drove the car almost for free for the last year.
