Worth it because it was fun
October 26, 2018
Bought this car as a lease buy back and drove it for almost 100k miles. During this time I modded it quite a bit and customized everything to my liking. Every time I started it up it put a smile to my face. The car is very fast and its comfortable for long drives too with good mpg (I6) as compared to M3s of the same year. The only downside is that the reliability has been pretty garbage causing me to spend thousands per year on its upkeep and lastly the depreciation has been crazy! I spent about 30k for this car and another 30k on top for repairs, maint, and customizations all to sell it for 8k a couple years later. I guess thats because its a common car. Next time i'll be sure to buy a rarer car. Selling it because at its current value it was getting pretty pointless to keep spending money on it.
