: My other car, a turbo 300zx, has 170K miles.
: Maintance on the car has been minimal for years--oil change every 10K miles, cheapest oil, cheapest gas.
: The car still runs great. Just wondering if I can expect my '97 M3 to be as reliable. At what mile will
: I start seeing major problems? Thanks.

Sounds like you were lucky. My Dad had a 300ZX turbo and it was nothing but trouble. He bought it on the advice of a friend who also started experiencing problems with his soon after. Anyways I have had quite good luck with my 95 ///M3. Did have to get the fuel sensor, and the reverse sensor replaced at about 35k miles. Since then no problems. I do change oil at about 3k miles ;-)
