What will your next BMW be?

I only got my F30 330d in March so have it till March 2017 - I do plan to drive a 530/35 just to compare.

I expect the 5 to be more refined/pleasant to be in but handling to be a bit ponderous.

If nothing else, it's a good comparison - must say that current F10 saloon does look a bit dull so it needs more bits to make it look sportier.

Either back to a 328i M sport or more than likely a 335i M sport

Already thinking of next car..

Well if it's a BMW it will be the 340i Xdrive.

If not, then one of following.

Ford Mustang 5.0 V8
Jaguar XE shooting brake X-S

Basically, next car needs to be able to manage a dog in the back and not excessively large.
It will also be petrol.
It will also be the car with the best discount and lowest apr.
While I can go easily to 800 a month, I don't see the point of not getting best possible deal.

Taking to one of the BMW Geeks, the F10 replacement is likely to be better drivers' car and weigh less than the existing model, with use of carbon fibre. A 535xd / 540xd / 540xi would be pretty tempting, or an M5, preferably with xDrive...

My present deal is up around 12/2016 and so I'll probably be looking to order my next car sometime between 9/2015 and 6/2016.

I'm happy enough with the performance/price level of my existing car and so I guess that'll be me looking at either the revamped face-lifted more powerful 3's, 4's and (possibly) the M2... M235i is also an option I am thinking about...

Not sure I want to go bigger than my F30, so 5's might not be on the list...

I've even looked at the 2 tourer thingy....

(sound of tumbleweed blowing in the wind)

I'll get mi' coat........

Tempted by the M2, just depends on what the wife wants as she will have to have a practical car then. Otherwise a 340i Xdrive could be good not sure I want to go any bigger than a 3 series.

If I move away from BMW (off topic I know) then a Porsche Macan is top of my list.

There are so many models which I'd like to try that I have no idea. It would be a spark of the moment I suppose like this F30 was. I didn't even consider F30 before I had ordered it. I couldn't resist the wonderful deal, so gave up 4 series. Next one would be petrol I suppose so anything like x35, x40i or watever comes to live in 2016. M3/4 would be one of choice if I can afford it. I will also have a closer look to X4 however less likely.

It is but there is speculation that a 340i will appear at LCI though I can't see it myself. Had they of done a 540i at 5 series LCI then maybe but it never came.

I've only had my car less then a week and drove 5miles but last night specced up my next one on the configurator 430d GC, that's what I wanted originally when I ordered my car in August but the lack of discount on the GC's kind of forced me into another(3rd) F30 hopefully by this time next year

So... I just looked at the BMW website now (it's back up and running today) and, I have to say, there's really nothing there that would tempt me to change now (early)... There are some nice cars, sure, but they're starting to look a little pricy (are the deep discounts of late 2013 still available?), and the finance rates seem to have shot up recently (the lowest I saw was about 5/6%, which is close on double what I got mine for..)..

I'm not seeing that there's presently anything like the value in /month that I have with my current car... Maybe it a time-of-year thing... Orders now will not sensibly affect the end-of-year figures and so there are no commercial factors coming into play..?

Possibly a 125d pending the reviews of the LCi upgrades due in March next year, sadly not another 3 series as I would have to drop to a 318d with my budget to get the spec I want and I really don't want any less power

Otherwise it will be a change of brand with the Golf GTD looking the most favourable choice.
