she was like "OK, that is fine"
Definitly want to buy it off you then.

Honestly this might be your best bet. Then after a few years you can still get another car and the 330i has more value to it. How soon after you get the m3 sedan would you be thinking of getting another car?

Am I being selfish here? lol
I vote a strong no.

Yes, because you have your vert, a mtn of parts, and mtnbikes, but you also have a more reasonable Touring, a utilitarian pick up, and one of them spacious GMC crossdresser thingamabobs.
