Decide to go with the BMW iX3 M Sport Pro on a 24 month Lease with 12k mileage. Reason for this is that in 2 years BMW bring out the Neue Klasse platform for their EVs and supposeldy first release will be a 3 series and a new iX3 also by then Porsche will have brought out their Macan EV, so in the meantime can live with the iX3 for a couple of years.

No deposit required for me as it's a company scheme. Monthly is £660 but that's everything included, insurance, servicing, wear and tear, tyres, brakes etc.

Saying goodbye to this beast and considering an E93 M3 Convertible for the next joint. All about the natural aspiration.

I think performance battery plus is an essential upgrade.

Thank you. It’s a bit of a renegade combination. I’ve got the metallic black exterior with the full leather interior. Leather is black and Bordeaux red. I got the diamond cut aeroblade alloys with the carbon fibre inserts.

I have an e92 m3, have had it for about 7 years and still love it. I would say go for the coupe for the carbon roof, weight saving and larger boot.

Only buy LCI cars, with the updated idrive and LED taillights. DCT is my preference for gearbox, the engine with its high revving NA suits the paddles and imo it feels more exicting to drive.

If buying high mileage consider getting the rod bearings done or buy one that has had it done from a reputable shop.

Mines on 35,000 miles, never missed a beat and never needed anything other than consumables. If you aint driving it a few times a week you will need a ctek, because they can drain the battery in a week.

couldn't you get an f80 for only a little more?
I know its not the same as the e9x v8, but its a pretty perfect all round car imo.
