Just to update this thread, we're going with the swap lease 335gt. I should have the car next week. It will be interesting to see how it plays out. I'm kind of excited to try it and think my wife will like the GT a lot.

The buy a Honda Civic at Carmax and sell it back to them when we're done was an interesting idea as well and might be an option next summer. This year, I really don't want to *OWN* four cars.

Gee, I thought you might buy Rumatt's wagon.

careful what you wish for, I always found the 3gt to be pretty homely. I am curious how comfortable the back seat is, whether the dog will fit in the hatch and if I can feel any discernible difference with the BMW performance pack on an N55.

Edit: Listing was here:

The first thing I do will be removing the fake M badge. I may even bring a pair of channel locks with me and do it in the parking lot when I get the car.

M badge is silly and has to go. And what's with those Stuka-like pix? Nonetheless, should be a nice addition to the fleet.
