Lots of lousy drivers running into other people around college campuses. My son was glad he was driving our old Merc. My suggestion is not to get your dream car until you are out in a more-or-less normal environment. For now get a used regular 3 something.

No, don't get an M3 while your in college. An M3 is a high performance car, and you need to think of it that way, which means it requires maintenance and lots of care, alot more then your typical Honda or Toyota. If the M3 will be your only car, and your only form of transportation, then especially don't, because things do happen, and more often so with the M, and you will be screwed.

Finally, even parking in the back lot of college parking lots is asking for door dings, scratches, and even worse, vandalism like keying.

Just buy a civic or something to get through school, and buy an M3 when your actually ready, not just "wanting" it's two different things.

alright, thanks yall

Does the M require that much more maintenance over a regular 3?


I'm gettin a bimmer, i dont want a ricer or even a domestic, i have a truck and i want a nice car, but also one that i can hold my head high when im leavin a concert or drivin round campus, im a country boy and it'd be hard to talk to girls sittin a civic or cobalt or prius. yall get what im sayin?

College kid here and the only kid in the college of Agriculture with a m3 and I still love the m3 but hate the repair bills that I can't do. I do as much as I can myself and with help of friends. A m3 is a nicer car than a civic or truck or what-not but its not going to get you chicks. I've had a e36 325iS and E36 m3 maintainance was the same for me.

Save the M3 until after college. Find a nice 3xx vert CPO and save your money.
