I've got an interested party for my M5 but suddenly I'm wondering if I really want to sell it - early seller's remorse, I guess.   My asking price is $150K.  If I get my price, what do I get next?  The M3 and RS4 and C63 with a few options are going to be more.  I don't need the cash, but I don't really need the car either.  I'm not sure what to do...but I'm thinking of taking it off the market until I've got a better reason to sell it.

Next car = Exige.

When you've taken the depreciation hit I might be ready to buy it off you.  :)  Get krypton-green, white or black please. :D

If you don't need the car then sell it. The cash is irrelevant, but keeping the car while it's still depreciating and you're paying rego, insurance etc. seems a bit pointless.

At least you'll have the deposit for the next big thing that takes your fancy.

Edit: It's nice how Ash and I are keen to keep looking after Mark's cars.  :D

Possible uses for M5:
- Practicle 4 seater car (how often do you need this? and will the E500 be readily available to you when you do need a 4 seater?)
- A beautiful touring car, compared to the E500
- A car you could comfortably use in future CA events and not have too many concerns

What you shouldn't do is get the M3, RS4 or C63. You've already have a 'true' sports car, a tiny 4 seater sedan ain't gonna cut it, especially if you already have the M5.

Having said all that, if you no longer like the car, just sell it and forget about it  :)

Can't offer advise on your slight dilema, you know or will know the right answer soon. The price you have on it is pretty spot on as a mate in QLD is looking at buying one at that same price.

This would attract attention like nothing else on road!

You make something idiotproof, they'll make a better idiot.
