Mein Auto: M3 Conv
There is no reason why a M3 will not last more then 200,000 + miles as long as you are diligent about regular servicing. My previous car was a E36 M3 and it was stage 3 Dinan and when i sold it with 160k it was still not burning a drop of oil. I am a strong believer of synthetic oil at 5k intervals + regular maintenance.

I have a E46 M3 and at 80k you can wrap your finger around the exhaust tip and there is hardly any carbon build up and as a result it is not burning a drop of oil. Also using gas from Chevron or Shell is a key player in keeping your engine internals clean
