Wheels are a little too aggressive for my tastes.

Any opinions on the Jaguar XF?  Specifically, the 2015 (i.e. outgoing) mid-range six cylinder 3.0 supercharged version?  Dealer just offered me something surprising, and I might be about to do something rash.

This is the first Panamera that I've ever thought was good looking!

My girlfriend thinks that the above panamera and other hatchbacks are ugly.


Wat do? I really thought there was something special about her but now this...

Give her the ol' Deal With It.

The local Volkswagen dealers are morons at best.  Sales guy just emails me "Dear Mrs. Brokencycle" but emails me, and asks me if I'm still looking for a new VW.... I was in there almost exactly a year ago last time.  When I was there, they told me they had a "great deal" and tried getting me to pay off the remainder of my lease to get a new lease on a lower trim car for 20% more/month, and I told him in no uncertain terms that wasn't going to happen.

what are some things to consider when looking at E46 Ms?

Yeah 3 things: (1) No SMG - good (2) sub-frame - well deal with it (3) owner pricing a mass production 11 year old car w/ 95k miles on it at $16k - check

I dig the E46 M3, and @greenfrog's is actually a great example, especially with the 359 wheels he has. However, I don't get why many owners think there is only one example ever made, their color combo is the best (usually carbon black, interlagos blue, or vomit phoenix yellow exterior and a black or cinnamon interior), and it should be on display at some museum with Ralph Lauren's Bugatti collection.

Wholesale on that car is 9-10K, so that's quite a premium he's seeking.
post #22287 of 26360
im going to guess it's because it's a non SMG? i haven't found too many for sale yet with a traditional 6 speed, but also haven't been looking aggressively.

i can do general maintenance such as brakes and fluid changes, so that aside how potentially disastrous is it to own that car (financially)?
post #22288 of 26360
Ask yourself how financially disastrous it would be to own a 12 year old E46 and add about 50% for an M3.
Source - own an M Coupe.

I think that price is fair for a clean, unmolested 6MT.

Anyone that is the second owner of an M car and claims it hasn't been 'raced' in 95k miles (rounding up correctly, which the owner apparently can't) is probably accurate. It has, however, seen a lot of stop light to stop light stuff. If it's listed as an 8/10, it's likely a 6/10 IRL.

The E46 M isn't some fairy dust once in a generation car. Neither is the F8x M. They're both great cars, but neither are pontification worthy - same with all the M cars that came between or after them. The 991 GT3 RS, the McLaren 675LT, the Ferrari 488... etc. on the other hand....

I'm sure some internet badasses will have a more informed opinion after having read reviews based on reviews based on the manufacturer's spec sheet.
