I paid $1250 for BMWs tire and wheel plan on a new 2013 M3 vert. 5 years. I think the aftermarket plans require a lot of research for the ins and outs (where they can get out of paying). The $1250...

I've had great experiences at Advantage Auto Body in Fremont. They are very professional and have taken care of our last accidents. Especially noteworthy is their paint matching ability.

Mine came from the dealer installed as new and wasn't painted black. I would think it would look way better in black. Who does that painting (in the Bay Area?)

Was going to lease. But decided since I know the car so well with the 335 and the M3 was my dream car, I decided to buy. Given I only put on 9000 miles a year, I'll have it for a long time.
