I DD my M3 currently. If I had more garage space I probably wouldn't. Just don't want to leave a car out in the drive way, juggling cars and scrapping off snow, maybe I'm being lazy. I only put 3k...

Help! Getting a squeal when driving

When did your starter fail?

Bought my 2003.5 M3 with 42700 miles. Starter went out 2 weeks later. Low miles but older car I guess. Not to bad of a job from the top. Great DIY guides out there

Are you replacing it yourself. I just did mine back in February. Not a bad job. Was able to do it from the top. Starter should be about $200-300 + core charge. I would imagine you'd pay about $800 at...
