The dealership was just tired of negotiating with me. So I guess that option has returned, if I'm willing to pay their asking price (which is fair for the current market conditions).

With the benefit of more knowledge on what to look for I also noticed this "one owner" car is actually a PCNA executive car that was used by PCNA for 18 months and 7K miles before being leased and titled. I don't think that's necessarily a negative as I've read that people have good experiences with PCNA cars (and you get free PPF on the front end).

I've decided I need an E9X. At the expense of the F82? When I'm not in the F82 I rationalize ways to trade it but every time I drive the F82 I realize how good it is and trade ideas fly out the window lol. Pretty much I'll have to own both… now I just gotta find a chick who is either into cars or can get into them so I can justify owning both (his/hers) lol. Also need to wait for E9X prices to come down from crazy town
E9X weekend/track car with F8X daily could be a pretty fun combo, not to mention despite the two cars having the same badge (well, I guess not in the M4's case, but you get the point), they offer two very different and unique experiences behind the wheel. E9X prices sure are crazy though, they were going up even before the shortage.

E9X track car and X5 daily would be a better combination.

Make sure you put a tow hook on the E9x too in case the X5 breaks down...

Heck yeah, that's the most bad-ass tow rig combo I've seen since 1930s Bentley Blowers towing all kinds of race cars a couple years back.

in the same boat. i think about the v8 sounds from an e92 and how much more fun it is just cruising around town than the f80. But then i drive the f80 hard on a back road and i dont wanna sell it lol.

then i check e92 comp prices and its tough to justify selling my f80 for an older generation m3 with more miles, less tech, less reliability, for the same money.

As long as you don't care for driving assistants and HUD, E9x has got about the same level of tech as F3x. With the optional Individual Audio being better than H/K.

CIC iDrive w/ Combox is still usable these days, though an OEM NBT retrofit would go a long way and so would a headlight upgrade with better projectors and D1S bulbs. That's about it really, I think.

Stumbled upon a used G82 6MT at Autohaus Porsche today, must have traded in on something nice. Apparently the car has been there for two months since the start of June, most likely sitting due to the current market pricing of used cars which has it priced at MSRP despite having 2,000+ miles ($81,000).

They also had this gorgeous Tango Red RS6.

And I got another look at an E-Tron GT, this time in Tango Red, and I have to say the car keeps disappointing me. Audi, like BMW, also seems to have a grill problem. Surprisingly, the car looks better in photos/videos than it does in person. Online it looked much sharper and smaller, whereas in person the creases are not as hard or soft as they appear, the rear end is very chunky with large taillights, and the car overall looks large and contrasts the small greenhouse of the car. The front is the worst aspect, as there is no body-matching grill option in the US meaning you get a gray or all black front end which looks like a huge car bra. After viewing a E-Tron GT and Taycan back to back, I think the Taycan with its sweet curves and beautiful rear end is a much better design. Not to mention this Audi is priced like a Porsche at $120,000.

It looks pretty good in those photos, so i guess that proves your point about it looking too good in photos.

But i agree, the Taycan is the real deal, and it drives like a Porsche (albeit only for 180 miles )

There's just something off in person, its hard to describe I'm not sure. Maybe I'll change my opinion when I see a better spec'd RS model, but at the moment I'm team Taycan lol.

Wow.. I've never been able to shake a salesperson once I show interest in a car. Maybe that's a sign that the price is right? Go for it!

Less tech? V8 and MPE plus iPhone stuck to dash is all that is required 🤣

That’s actually my plan LOL. I figure when I find a lady-friend, I’ll try to get her into driving with the F82, then in a couple years I’ll say that I love the F82 but as a compromise I’ll just go ahead and pick up an E90 so we can enjoy the drive together. Little will she know it was all part of the plan.

I’d run both as daily / track toys tbh. I have this crazy idea to grab a E90 at some point and do a full “restomod” on it. Engine/trans refresh, exterior refresh, and interior re-trim. Thinking a CS-esque interior with 4 buckets (inspired by the F90 CS). I personally don’t mind looking for a 100k mile base car given what is plan to do with it. It’s more of a 5 year plan, so I’m pretty content to sit and wait until prices come back down to earth.

Yeah I’ve just been avoiding but continuously running into the realization that F8X and E9X are a perfect pairing… if you only had one you’d sorely miss the other

The market is different right now. Salesmen are just waiting to write purchase orders. Very few I have spoken with are willing to negotiate. (I can get 11-12% off BMWs in normal times and I got 4% off a G80 M3 so I know how to play the game.)

My mate was trying to find a car girl after his break up, I told him that it's better to just have someone who will tolerate his vehicular shenanigans in the beginning and either stay indifferent or become somewhat interested. Safe to say, she's started liking going fast in the passenger after a year or so.
