The M3 costs just shy of twice as much to maintain as a non-M. Which is not so unreasonable.

An E39 M5 costs about twice as much as an E46 M3 to maintain. This is coming from one of the foremost experts on maintenance in the country on the E46 M3 and E39 M5 (not me).

And I hope you get something other than the original 3M clear bra... they own one of the companies that's much better than their original now.
