M240xi
« on: August 07, 2017, 08:45:52 AM »
I have been frothing over this car that I can't afford.
M240xi all wheel drive, 330hp.  Unfortunately, it only comes with a shiftable automatic.  It is a heavy car, so not good for autox.
I was getting tired of shifting anyway.  If somebody comes across a bag filled with money, it's mine.

I don't know what you're talking about, frothing over cars one cannot afford.

Pretty sure we all do this? :)

My wife had an M235i for over 2 years, although she refused to have all wheel drive so we went to Cleaveland and found a real one with Rwd. Was an awesome car. We test drove the XI version and it was just missing a little something. Never regretted getting Rwd. With good snow tires she got around perfectly fine.

How about this one: https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?listingId=460757702

It isn't the M240 but it is still a hell of a car for the price. This one has been open in my browser for a few days....
