I would definitely do the brakes. You might be fine on the stock pads depending on the speed, but given the age of your car you should at least change the fluid.

I mean I have a new set of pads and rbf600 sitting on my shelf that I bought but never used. checked last year and my pads were still at 75% on the fronts.

just seems like such a pain to do a full fluid change when I haven't had an issue yet with it. but then I weigh the opposite thinking what if because it's been another year and 10-15k miles if it's gonna be "that" time it'll go.

At the end of the day the M4 is ridiculously expensive, so I wrote it off. Plus, I already have a BMW like that, excluding the engine and suspension. I only have about $50k I'm willing to work with... the cheaper the better. It's just going to be a fun DD, so I don't really need something that will set the world on fire.

I know you hate them, but the new Mustangs offer a lot of value for very little money.

I like it! If you can look at it without bias it's a really good car.

The Q60... not my cup of tea. To be honest, I probably won't be giving any more of my money to Nissan. I've been going back and forth between the Mustang and M235i. They drive how I like, offer the features I want, look nice (subjective) and offer quite a lot of value.

No matter what I do it's not like you'll stop loving me.

The problem with the BMW is I pretty much already have the exact car. Same engine, mostly the same interior, same suspension... It'd be kind of boring after a while I think. Plus it's ~$51k OTD. The Mustang is only $40k OTD... with more features and performance.

I'd rather buy it then spend the remaining $10k on a Jaeger LeCoultre MUT Moon 39.

I like the new Mustang a lot, but I'm not yet sold on the rear end. When I looked closer/longer at it at the Chicago auto show. It has a very pointy rear end from certain angles and made the car look a bit weird. Stang would be cheaper though than M235i probably.

Side note, for the Mustang I wish they could blend 2015 interior with 2013 exterior.

Yeah, it has four wheels and two doors.

I feel like that's a weak argument, but we've been over this before.
