I have a '95 M3 w/ 68+k miles on it. No major problems, but after high many miles should I expect some? 150k? Just curious...Need to know when I should drop in a euro 3.2 =]

The only thing to really be concerned about on a '95 M3 is the water pump. '95 M3 water pumps had a plastic impeller which is prone to fail. Best thing to do is to replace it now (BTDT on a friend's '95).

That's about the only thing I can think of - otherwise, periodically check the condition of belt, hoses, etc. just like you would with any other 5 year old car.

Hope that helps,
