What To Buy?

So I sold the supercharged 328Ci, I needed something more "practical" (4-door) for work. I'm in the market for another BMW and find myself torn between two...

First is a 2003 330i ZCP 6-speed (pic 1/2) http://www.scarboroeastauto.ca/used/...19cea400e8.htm

Second is a 2002 540i auto M-package w/nav (pic 3/4) http://www.qualitymotorstoronto.com/...449ef8d1d82018

Both are around the same kilometres for the same sort of money

Links to adverts?

Do you need the bigger space of a 5-er?

Edited the links in. I sell real estate and occasionally have to take clients around with me, so for the few times that I'd have to use it the extra space would be nice...

Nvm .....saw the links. The 3er with the package will probably be more fun to drive. However the 5 is an excellent cruiser!!

Well, somebody beat me to the punch on the ZCP. The 540i was a little more rough around the edges than I would have liked so I've changed direction all together and bought an X5. It's a little strange going from sitting inches off of the road to an SUV but at least this should fare a little better in the snow... Thanks for everybody's input!
