And the simple plastic impellar deal has also lead to a number of really big expensive issues when not caught in time. Granted it doesn't happen to every 95 owner, but to the few it did, OUCH!
Assuming you are the original 95 owner or bought the car from an owner who maintained their M3s well and followed the recalls, than in specific cases...then heck even I can be wrong.
However, in just observing this boards postings over the past few months, it seems a lot of issues are with 95 cars.
Nope, can't say they were all 95's as you and OB I pointed out, but enough for me to notice. I personally have a '96 and I've found about every quirk/leak/rattle in the car. So I know it's not bulletproof.
He asked for 2-cents worth of an opinion, I gave it. And he got 2-cents of yours.
I will conceded all years of M3 cars will need to be kept up to run at optimum performance and any negligence will prove expensive.
And a big positive with 95 models, they are well within financial reach as preowned cars.
The heart of my opinion wasn't to knock the 95 models (I love the LTW), but to emphasize that with a newer/used car, you're generally going to have less to worry about or fix.
I mean peace and no offenses to the M3-brothers. Point out my ignorance gracefully and I will consider being wrong.
