Subject: Purchase help
Looking for a used car, just an extra set of wheels, nothing crazy. A friend of mine owns a used car lot and has both a 2010 328i with 125k miles and a 2008 535i with 112k miles. I know very little about these cars but I’m a mechanic by day so I’m not afraid of making repairs (but I also don’t want to spend all my free time fixing something) which one of these two cars sees 200k with less headache and what’s really the difference between a 3 series and a 5 series besides some extra rear leg room?

Subject: Help me compare two 2018 340i’s
Local dealer has two 2018 340i’s on lot that I’d love to hear some opinions on. I’d argue both are overpriced but who knows how much wiggle room there is right now.
Option 1: White, xDrive (plus for WI winters), CPO w/19 months left on warranty, 25000 miles, performance exhaust, $40801 Option 1
Option 2: Red, RWD, not CPO, 40000 miles, ZHP (Sound and performance package I THINK), $40680 Option 2
Worth noting Option 1 has come down $4k over the last few months. Salesman I worked with didn’t know much about the ZHP package but I found it hidden on the option sheet. This should give the extra HP as well as exhaust, correct?
Any recommendations one or the other?

Subject: How do you all wait?
I placed an order for an i4 M50 the beginning of the month, it's not in the order bank yet, and the dealership was talking about an early to mid 23 delivery date. How the hell do some of you wait that long? It's driving me crazy. Having anxiety and ADHD don't exactly help the situation. Admittedly this is my first BMW so I am not really brand loyal at this point, but I always find myself at other car configurators looking at different cars and wondering if I made the right decision to go EV at this point in time instead of enjoying ICE while it lasts. I test drove a 21 330i and the sounds of that engine really made the decision to go with the EV tougher than I thought. Part of me wants to go get a used 330 and drive it till the EV is ready lol.
TLDR: ADHD/Anxiety prone struggling with waiting for i4 M50 :)

Subject: How much are these worth it? They’ve been sitting for years and don’t run. Friend’s dad wants to sell them.

Hey BMW redditors! I’m starting a position at BMW on parts and services. I’d like to gauge what would make your service experience top tier when going into a dealership? What has your experience been like in the past/present and what would make it better? Thanks for your time!
Subject: Question about what features to get for the M340?
Hello all, I plan on placing an order for an M340 within the next month. I’ve never owned a BMW so I’d like some recommendations on which features to get. I’m a low mileage driver and basically only getting the car for fun and enjoyment. I work a remote job so I won’t be commuting in it. On the BMW design website, so far I’ve selected:
-2023 M340 xDrive
-M performance (is the shadowline worth it?)
-Skyscraper grey metallic (I think I prefer the dravit grey metallic but not sure if it’s worth the extra cost and production time)
-18 in standard wheels (is it worth getting the 19 in with the high performance package?)
-Black Vernasca leather with blue contrast stictching
-Aluminum Rhombicle Anthracite
-Driving assistance package
-Premium package (I really want HUD display)
-Wireless device charging
Total MSRP including destination fee is $62,795. Are there any other features that you think would be worth adding or maybe any above that aren’t necessary?
