Wanted to get some thoughts from internet strangers. My 2018 Audi S5 lease is over in a few months and I am going to place an order for a BMW M340 or M4. I am torn between going with what the heart desires (M4, track days, car meets) and the brain (M340, cheaper, more tech, and AWD for winter). Both will get summer/winter tires. Just wanted to get some hackr’s thoughts on these two BMWs.
Here is the lease breakdown if you are interested (The pricing is fixed since I work for a dealer with employee pricing. All situations are 10k miles, .00128 mf, conquest rebate, no aqc/dealer fee, tax inclusive, and $1500 due at signing):
2020 M340i xDrive E1K1PM0X
Dravit Gray, Cognac, Premium, 19” 791M, Driver Assist Pro, Wireless Charging, Harmon Kardon Sound, Ambient Lighting, Park Distance, black kidney grilles, carbon fiber mirror caps, carbon fiber spoiler
2020 M4 E1RUS0G8
San Marino Blue, Silverstone, 19” 437M, M Double Clutch, Wireless Charging, Blind spot, black grille, carbon fiber mirror caps, carbon fiber spoiler, electronic steering wheel
M4 without the accessories (not going to do this) is $685/mo for comparison.
