A guy in the E9x ///M forum just posted that he has over 150k miles and his car is in great shape.

Other than your opinion what empirical evidence to you have that BMW has done "nothing but go downhill" since 2006?
Well I was going to get a E60 M5 and I got a Maserati instead. I won't sell my E46 and I'll keep it. If I get another car it'll most likely be either a Maserati sedan, Bently Conti GT hard top or ferrari modena. But in the back of my mind it also tells me to buy an Evo 8, B5 S4 or Skyline GTR R35 and mod the crap out of them.
