    With all the economic hardship and death so many are induring, let’s just say I’m extremely fortunate to have a “simple problem” like this! I’ve retired and turn 70 in April, so if all my years of enjoyment under the hood of my cars has born any fruit, this happy problem is that fruit. I’m sure if we hadn’t just sold our house with 3 garage stalls I might not be thinking so hard about what to do. We’ll eventually buy another house when the housing market favors buyers instead of sellers. But until then, my fleet is “homeless” once I pull them out of storage

    That's how you end up with eight BMWs...!

    Congrats on the new car, it's beautiful. I love the banshee howl of those motors as it approaches redline, very distinctive.

    Exactly, the M3 is sooooo much more powerful, and I haven't even tried to use/program that M button. You mean there's more power? I think rockets must from the exhaust..... so James Bond. It's a blast

    Congrats on the new intoxicating vert Pete!

    Keep the ZHP, simple as that.

    I think it makes more sense to keep one AT and one MT. The 335xi is AT, the M3 is MT. Just my 2 cents.

    You guys are trying to help, I know. Clearly everyone has their own opinion. At least from all the suggestions, I'm glad no one has said " Sell the M3!" yet !

    OK Here we go...

    Photoshoot is tomorrow for the ZHP and the E92 Coupe. This is painful...

    The ZHP got detailed today and snapped a few images outside our hotel

    Should be on BaT in a few weeks if no interesting offers appear as I get it ready....
