Had a kid, thought we needed to be a 2 SUV family.
Realized we only need 1 SUV. Other lease is going back November…Disliked driving an SUV.
For a daily diver, I am back to a sedan. I still want 4 doors for child seat access. I considered M340i and entertained the BMW M3 but did not like the current pricing. If the M3 pricing was back to pre covid lease pricing, I would have gotten that and held out on electric longer.

Ive spent some seat time in a model 3, im not sure how its classified as a “sports” sedan. The handling is poor, its capable but feed back/weight make it not that “fun” to canyon carve in it… But the power train is good for LA traffic.
Next year, back to the lease hacking to replace the X3.
