In Reply to: M3 ownership questions posted by Sean K on March 05, 2001 at 17:09:39:

I had 2 M3s at the age of 18. The one sat because of the money it kept to keep one going, since the other one got totalled I now have one. The parts can be expensive and put a dent in the pocketbook-especially if you can't do your own work, Eric's post shows that. Preventative manintenence is the key to these cars-it needs constant attention. There is a distinction between a good car and a perfect car, its hard to get them perfect. My advice is that if you are looking for an M3 figure in $1000 for whatever it needs right off the bat(alt bushes, a/c bushes, intake gaskets, exhaust, brakes.....whatever) If you feel the M3 is too much get a 325is and mod it a little and it will be loads of fun and pretty quick as well. A year of M3 ownership will cost substantially more than most cars, although the smile put on your face from it is worth it- I will never get rid of this car, its just too much fun.
