Everything You Heard, Hoped For, and More!

Listen, anyone in 2020 looking to buy this generation of M3 has done their homework as much as humanely possible. Take it from someone in your exact position, you will love everything about these cars, especially if you get a premium extended warranty which is why in our case we were patient and finally found/purchased ours through CarMax. This alleviates the ONLY two concerns with this entire generation, the connection rod bearings and the throttle body assemblies. To be fair, we've experienced NO issues with either and honestly at this point I'm no longer expecting to!

The longevity of the ride really matters unless there are major problems early on. Bought in 07/10 This is a 6sp manual hardtop Convert that has provided years of pleasure. 106k+ miles and here are/were the problems. Nav stinks never was any good and completely has been bad for the past 10k miles ( telling it an address to look up or change stations??? it does what it wants to do :( The glove box now wont open :(. But I can still get 22+ mpg hwy. and though the car has lost some power......it still has enough get up and go as to not embarrass Handling is still excellent Do it again if I had the chance ?? 1000% yes. I will trade it in once its performance breaks down or I win the lottery :)

The are a lot of odd noises the m3 makes that can be annoying to drive it around daily there clicking and whoosing that sounds like reverb speaker feedback its unnoticeable on a test drive but after a week or so you’ll be searching the net looking for answers

I’m never selling it

Bought my 2011 with 22k miles in March 2020. The s65 4.0 masterpiece V8 with Valvetronic exhaust makes sounds that, if angels can sing, sound like my M3. Every time I get behind the wheel, smiles happen. Allot of smiles. Put top down, that’s right, more smiles. People are always asking, what is this thing, what’s under the hood? Heaven, that’s what’s under the hood. Now, my life is consumed with finding the best, most curvy roads I can find because that’s where this car belongs and excels. The interstate is a waste of mileage, I avoid it like the plague. I’m on the list for a 2022 Vette, thinking Z06. If that happens, the M3 is going nowhere. I’m never selling this car. Ever.
