So,yesterday I talked with a BMW rep about the 2013 135i, and if I keep the options down ( no Nav, etc.), and I consider BMWCA, Loyalty and other discounts, the price is not much more than the Mini, equally equipped...
So my choices are:
1) Keep my car and drive into the ground..
2) Get the roadster ( I really do feel that it is over priced..)
3) Or take advantage of the value in my car, and turn it over for a 2013 135....
The new 135 i might have the N55 engine.... I have Nav on my present car, think it is a waste, and will eliminate it... Do you guys feel the same about the Nav? Would you (have you...) buy another 135i????
Is your current '08 135 paid off? If it is, why trade it in for a newer model of the same car that you would have to start making payments on again? Is the '08 being out of warranty prompting the trade? If so, it would probably still be more expensive to move to the new car as opposed to paying the maintenance/repair work if/when the '08 135 needs it.
