While I only put 12-14k per year on my cars, I have daily driven 3 M3's for the last 13 years ('01 E46, '06 E46 and now '11 E92). All have proven very reliable and great fun.
Go for it.

Re: Feeler: 18" staggered RAC RG-63's.

I had these RG63's on my E46 M3 before I sold it and bought my E92 M3, which as luck would have it also had the RG63's on it (along with the same Michelin PSS's which I had on my E46, to boot). In...

Re: another A+ for Tekarbon painted rear diffuser. *lots of pics*

OP, nice post. I had one of these on my (now sold) E46 M3 and I loved it. Great fitment and very nice paint job (mine was SGM) and for a very reasonable price.

Re: 71k Mileage too high for an 08 M3?

Re: PPI Needed!!!

Then don't buy the car from them. Just walk away because that is a bad sign if they don't want you to get an independent PPI. There are plenty of other M3's out there.

Re: More Torque

I had an Evolve tune and a 4.10 diff on my E46 M3 and it made a nice increase in low end torque according to my butt dyno. You are NOT going to get an F/I
kind of boost that way, however.

Re: Scouting for M3s

Get a PPI from a reputable local dealership or an indy shop that has substantial BMW M3 experience. If all checks out, that sounds pretty good.
