Re: New m3 and rod bearings

Here's a question that may be a stupid one, and if this is covered elsewhere I apologize, but what exactly do you experience with a rod bearing "failure" as a driver? Does your vehicle stop?

Re: Why are there so many M3 for sale around 50k miles?

That's because it's a more recent build, it's expected to dip into depreciation, but it will rise, as did the e30. Once a few years go by, and the nostalgia sets in more, the value will rise, there's...
