: What do u gays\gals do for a living to afford your M3`s. Please someone say "I`m a cleaner" or something so I can justify buying one.
I'll be honest and say if your going to buy an M3 it won't be cheap, you can get cheap ones but they're money pits and not worth the bother or exspense. If you are considering buying an M3 try and buy the best you can afford. If you buy a decent one it should'nt cost that much to maintain especially if you do some of the maintainance yourself. Parts for M3's are a bit more exspensive than a standard BMW but thats the price you pay!. If anything major goes wrong like an engine bang your talking big bucks around £4k-£5 for a replacement from BMW, but the engine is immensely strong and provided it's not hammered everwhere you go there's no reason it should'nt last 200K+. My advise to you if you are thinking of buying a cheap M3...DON'T...it will cause you heartache and an empty wallet. If you buy a decent one thats been looked after, it should'nt cost that much to keep. Another alternative is to start with a e30 325i, these cars are fantastic fun and can be picked up for pennies.
Hope this helps.
