Really a nice comment.

I dont know if the M5 is too expensive (compared to M235 or something). It might depend on company policy if the lease is through a company.

In Europe (where i live) companies have quite strict policies on how much you are allowed to spend (on a company car)

I will keep this brief as I'm genuinely looking for some fellow BMW enthusiasts input here.

What is everyone's thoughts on the KIA Stinger GT1 and GT2? I keep coming back to this car even though there is no manual option. Good looks, New Tech, 365 HP and they look to lease out well.

Am I nuts for considering a KIA?

Thanks.
Base M3 leases aren't THAT much more than a fully loaded 340i. Just sayin....

Cool. Did not know that. In Europe (Denmark NOT Germany) the diff. is much larger (prop. due to the fact that there are only few true M-Cars)

Then I vote for a true M4 (or M3)

The police car comment was an insdie joke, he's a close personal friend of mine.

Anyway, the new M4/340M wont be out for quite some time and I won't consider a third F series lease.

If you are driving BMW xxxi i.e. not diesel then you should maybe go for a M240?

Just my simple words....
I really like the M240 but I have a 3 year old and really need the 4 doors. 1st world problems.
i have a 435i zhp and a 3 year old, learn to live a little

And it only took 28 posts to learn why not to bother asking the internet for advice.
