Question 2010 135i or 2009.... (HELP) what would you do????


I've been thinking of getting a 135i coupe for a long time....and was thinking of a CPO.... because I'm cheap.

First, I found an CPO 08 135i w/ sport, but NO premium for 32K (no grind, online price).

I wasn't too hot on a car w/out the premium package.... so I kept looking.

I found an 09 w/ 6K miles... it had premium and sport, but NO M-sport. 36K, wouldn't budge on the price. No negotiation + No M-Sport = NO SALE.

Then I found a 2010 factory demo w/ 5k miles for 36K. Sport, Premium, Montego Blue on Black Boston Leather.

I didn't pull the trigger because the third car doesn't have M-Sport.

I'm looking to buy.... I realized that I can get WAY better financing (1.9%) if I get a 2010 135i.... and I'm now leaning in that direction over a CPO (standard rates apply to CPO 1series).

This got me onto (AWESOME site BTW) where I can get a NEW 2010 w/ M-Sport and premium (black on red)..... I can get into one for about 40K

So..... my friends... which do you think is the better deal?

an 08 @ 32K, a 2010 w/ 5K miles @ 36K, or a brand-new 2010 for 40K? Is my need for the M-Sport package overrated?????

One last thing.... all are auto transmission.

PPS: i've already told myself that I have to draw the line somewhere, anso I'm not even considering the 2011 w/ DCT.... because I'm Cheap.

Thanks in advance!
