What do you plan on using the car for? I'm still young and I'm starting to understand and appreciate the importance of a backseat. Think long and hard on whether or not you really need a backseat.


Out of those 2, I'd rather own the NISMO. But realistically, if I had to pick one and actually live with it everyday, I'd pick the 335i.

all youve got is a stage 4 hpf? pffft cmon...thats so weak, couldnt afford stage 7.3?

335i

I had a sedan for less than a month before totaling it. Now I'm looking for another.

For that price, you can have a CPO'd car that will have another 3 years of warranty.

I'd take the 335 just for the superior comfort and the back seat. the 370z is just really cramped from what I've heard. On top of that, the plastics and materials they use have been really subpar compared to BMW. You can't really load stuff into the 370z, at least with the BMW you get the back seat. I also think that tiny two-seater cars look kind of girly.

I had an 02. Paid it off, gave it to my dad.

I bought myself an 07 335i sedan. Black on brown. Premium, sport, nav.

20 days later or so, some guy loses control on the highway and slides right out in front of me. I t-bone him. Total loss.

Waiting for the insurance company to pay off my loan so I can receive the difference and go buy another car.
