    Hey there,

    after my old car has passed out, I need an other one. So I´m actually making good money online. But as we know, you never know in internet marketing, what will happen on the next day. If the google bia is freaking out, your income will be gone.

    First, my english is not the best so it will be hard to describe what I want to say now :D

    So I have an decision to make. I have 2 cars with different options/settings?

    What would you do?

    Buy the car with nearly everything in it like xenon, navigation, leather seats and a lot more?

    Or would you say, dude calm down, get the one with normal lights, not full leather seats, 50k more kilometers... and safe your money?

    The price difference between the 2 cars is ~3000 - 4000€

    The cheaper one costs ~15.000€ and the expensive one costs 18.500€


    So would you say, save your money because you dont know what will happen tomorrow with your online marketing? Or would you say get the good one and live your life? :D

    Be a bit more selective. It sounds like you haven't really bought a car before or you wouldn't be asking a group of internet marketers which car to buy. It's outside the US so I'm not sure about all the details, but seems to me like you'd be able to get a used car cheaper elsewhere.

    A car is a necessity just to get you from point a to point b. As a necessity, it is justified to indebt yourself for it. You are buying *this* particular car because it is a toy for you. Never put yourself in debt for a toy unless you have basically 0 chance of defaulting on it.

    If you can buy it with cash and you still have money to keep working, then go for it.

    N47 2.0d 143cp, 177cp, 204cp ,184cp this engine has a big issue with the distribution chain breaking and f*in up the whole engine.

    I sugest reading up BMW forums like

    http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/

    before choosing a model(I personally like the E90 320d/i between 2005-2006 and E46 2005 which is flawless)

    I know, stupid question. But I´m going crazy, researching for 3 weeks now. Actually I´ve read the "rich dad poor dad" books and I know it is stupid to pay so much money for an car. He says invest your money with mid to max risk. I still found nothing to invest.

    But I have enough money on the side to live my live just like I do it now. I really love driving and cruising. Sometimes I take a ride with my car, only to relax and chill.

    My Golf gave up. I´ve driven it for 9 years now. I need something new to play. And the 120d with 177hp will make a lot of fun. The 123d with 204hp is much more fun but I think that is too much then.

    Edit: @Icetrance

    I went through many BMW threads and forums for the last 4 weeks. I know nearly everything about the car now :D The chain problem is not a big problem with the 120d. What can happen is that the turbo is screwing up. But a new one will cost about 500€. So no big deal, I can live with that.

    Do you plan to drive more than 100.000 km/year or miles:)
    if so diesel is the right choice if not then get a sportier 320i (coupe would be even better)

    I have a 328i and it's amazing.

    Mhh no I never will get an benzin driving car, my fathers 325i sucks 12-15 liters on 100km. In America its maybe cheap but here you pay 1,60€ (2.05$) for 1 liters Super95.

    My Golf is also an diesel and I love it. 5 liters on 100km, unbeatable... I dont care about the sound.

    The white one is the cheaper one!?

    It´s not about the colour, its about the extras. I like both colours. White looks a bit more sexy but blue would shine @night.

    In my opinion bmw is one of the most over-rated cars of all time. They're dime a dozen, boring aesthetics, expensive as hell to repair, lack of options for the money...etc

    The base 325i sedan's starting point is now $30,900 -- and that only buys vinyl seats.

    The only thing I would even consider buying from bmw is their bikes.
