GP 1.9 Sporting Multijet or 56' plate BMW Z4 3.2 M ???

I'm getting quite impatient now!

I ordered a GP because we've had 3 FIATS in the family over the past 2 years and they've been great!

I've ordered a 1.9 GP Sport in Carribean Orange. Just started a new job, i get 850.00 p/m allowance and have ordered the FIAT just to see how i get on in the first 4 months.

Did 300K worth of business today (with my job) and now thinking of the a 56' plate Z4 if my bloody GP does come in the next week. I only have to wait 2 weeks for a black Z4 3.2 M with lemon leather, wind deflector and professional nav.

Can i sell it on Autotrader for a profit - for anyone who wants one - and wants to jump the cue. How much would i be looking at, it's standard spec with special paint only.

Anyone interested???

Comments please...

Many thanks,

Simon.

£10620 new from fiat supersaver.

You may get 10k, but i wouldn't think anyone is going to pay a premium for yours to jump the queue. If you hunt around, you can buy a standard gp sporting with no options from stock (supersaver again had quite a few in the other week)

Why not just cancel the order?

It depends on your circumstances, if youre are a 26 yr old single male then go for the Z4

However if your missus is thinking of children in the next few months then maybe the GP for its better practicality then the Z4

In fact why not run both, have the Z4 as a weekend car and the GP as the fun workhorse?

I dont think you would get your deposit back

im not being funny but 1400 per month on a car for 3 years and then you dont even own it at the end of the contract - are you made or have just got to much money for sense! thats loads more than i even earn a month!!!

Cars depreciate and you'll never get back the money you put in, personally if i had alot of money like yourself i would invest it on other things..

Also maybe consider runing costs and repair costs! These cars aren't really comparable.

Hold off for the GP and enjoy your money! and remember invest

Yea, if I was loaded, I'd buy something like a second hand Alfa GT or Fiat coupe turbo, which with a bank loan, you'd be paying a hell of a lot less than 1400 a month for 3 years + it's yours to sell on or keep at the end of it.

What about the new Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe (powered hard top)? It is very good looking, more so than the Fiat and the BMW - more reliable and more fun to drive too!

Thats a matter of perspective IMO.
