Zero. It's bad enough I usually end up eating mileage. I get that the car you're looking at checks all the boxes for you, but I'd wait until my lease was up on the car I'm driving. I think there are cases where you may feel justified. All the advice on here is valid as there are no smart money decisions when it comes to cars. Especially these cars. Do what you want to do if you think you can afford it. People drop 15k on a trip to Disney and think that's money well spent.

I find some people want to get approval to make a decision they know isn't smart. Who cares what others think, and who cares if it's smart? If you want to do it, do it. I wouldn't, but I have in the past and it didn't sit right with me, so I never did it again.

My answer is none by just having an additional car for the additional months. Unless the current car is some kind of econobox (and a 340 is not), use both. It will only cost insurance since youíre paying for the remaining payments anyway. You might be able to take a nice LONG road trip on the new M3 because you saved some mileage on it in the beginning.

I would've kept it and paid the insurance, but I have a bother daily/beater so not enough room for 3 plus my wife's car...

I would eat the 3 payments. In the grand scheme of things, itís really not that much money compared to the money youíre saving with the deal on the M3. Iíve been searching for a while and good deals are somewhat hard to be had on the M3s. If you like the equipment and the car really sings to you, get it. Lifeís short.

I just bought an M4, while still having a lease on an X5 50i and I swear out of all the BMWs I ever owned or drove (about 9 total) the M4 takes it! Just an absolute blast to drive and I believe I obtained a great deal on the car.

For comparison, the one I purchased:
2017, 6,300 miles $53,000. No accidents, service records show everything done on-time to this point.

Nice job. It really isn't that much especially if you are BUYING, the car. Because you are going to spend that money anyway whether it's now or in 3 months, if you have the money. That was my logic or more likely "justification" haha. Whatever. I got it and I'm happy

You got the 17 M3? Congrats! I think you made the right choice. By now I'm sure you are all smiles. I
