And youve had your M how long? I bet less than a year. Even oil changes run about $100 in oil and filters alone.
And of course there arent major problems yet, because the oldest ones are 3 yrs old at most. I'm pretty sure the avg m owner also doesn't drive his/her car as much as the avg 3 series owner so mileage is usually lower, hence less issues so far.

Compound that statement. I have an 02 M3 with lower milage (bought it with 58 on it). I replaced the alternator... and did oil changes. That is all. Big deal.

No suspension replacement... No cooling system changes... I turn the key and drive.

It all depends on what you get when you buy a car. You could get a perfect looking, yet neglected $40K car, that will nit pick everything, or you could get a well maintained car that cost a little more, and works well with regular oil and coolant for years.

I mean, get on M3Post and read for yourself. Since they've released the car, you don't have nagging issues as you see in the 335 nor as what you saw initially in the previous generation M3.

Eh, not noticeable at all. Now what does get negative attention? driving loud, fast, and like a ****. I'm frequently guilty of this in my catless bright blue audi. However my subtle yet unique Moop? it hardly gets a second look.

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:
