so then guys.
Time to replace our 2008 e90 msport derv.
looking around the 14k region.
i dont want to drop in years ideally will be going forward a good chunk.
must have 4 proper seats for carting the boy about.
if its prestige car brand i expect prestige refinement in leathers cruise control etc.
Current e90 is fully loaded so id expect same again if going german.
needs to be manual.
needs to be good on the juice as mrs does a good 50 miles a day i'd have thought just to work and back so no m5's etc :drivin:
cant be much bigger than 3 series as mrs dont like big cars so rules out the xf's and 5 series etc.
finally... needs to be sporty looking / able to buy carbon trims for etc / modifyable. I cant drive standard cars lol.
Cant be black and needs to be the sports trim wise if staying prestige autobahn chewers.
eg. m-sport bmw, AMG styling merc, s-line audi's

so.... any suggestions sticking within the 'rules' above?

Mazda 3 MPS - 260bhp, hot hatch not too big looks awesome in stock form :)
if we dont stay with the prestige brands it's something we've looked at doing.
mrs always had hot hatches in past.

e90 saved her loads of dollars on gogo juice though.
she quite likes the megane rs cup things and the newish vxr astras too.

I'm changing my scoob to a 46 M3 (cage, carbon seats, coilys, csl front, e92 m3 rear spoiler, deep rims) so i dont think we need 2 bms and then we've got 2 capable toys :) :drivin:

I like the facelift c class to look at - that front ends yum - but the build quality doesn't seem to be there compared to the 3 series if you know what I mean.
You close the door and it rattles where as my bm closes with a thump.

Nothing wrong with our e90.
Had it 3.5 years and time for a change while it's still worth something.
Miles getting up a bit now.

Now beginning to think 'f the fuel bill' and looking at stretching the budget by buying e92 m3 as main car to replace my e90 derv and my scoob.
Prob cheaper in long run by time I tax insure and maintain both them cars.
By selling the scoob I could throw that money into the pot so the purchase price wouldn't be any different in reality.

Hmmm... Got some thinking to do.

One thing for sure. The Moggy turbo pickup stays. Lol
