Owning a 1M for driving OR investment is really, really silly. The main "valid" reasons for ownership are status or collection. That's it.

If you want to drive that car get a 135i with much greater marginal utility, or for 1M money, ridiculously higher performance. Seriously, do you know what $50K+ can do to a 135i, including the outright purchase of the car? Here's a list:

--Modify track and geometry to match or exceed 1M specs
--Modify with much better dampers than 1M
--Modify with much better aftermarket diff
--Change steering rack for tighter, if you're into that
--Ridiculous power. How much do you want?
--Optionally comes stock with dual clutch, blowing man trans out of the water for hard driving
--Money probably left over for other stuff, depending on how extravagant you went on the foregoing

Oh and if you want to invest long term look at the stock market.
