: "Giving up" .2 liters of displacement is insignificant, especially since minor modification gives the 3.0 liter just as much torque and more high-end punch. However, Ward makes a great point in that your 100,000 mile warranty might expire soon. I own a '95 M3 and my certified pre-owned warranty (six-year, 100,000 mile) expires September, 2001. You might want to take that into consideration. Of course it all depends on how many miles you plan on driving the car in the next year. Ask the owner for the date of production and add six years; that should give you a good idea of where the car stands.

Good Luck and Enjoy,

It all really depends on what you're willing to give up on your car. If you really think you need the warranty then go for the 95. But if you get the 95, you're giving up .2 liter displacement. Also isn't there a time limit on the warranty? Wouldn't the years make the warranty expire before you hit 100K miles?
