Help choosing my next BMW!
I have been looking into a new car for a couple months now and the E46 M3 has always been an excellent choice. I've located a 2005 smg convertible with 105K miles for $15,000. This car is the exact color combination I want (white with imola red). The first thing I looked into was the pump which was replaced 2000 miles ago along with the brakes. I really don't want to be paying out of pocket for any major repairs that may come up so what are your thoughts? Should I just keep looking for a manual or do you think the smb/pump will last at least another 40K miles?
My mechanic who is very accustomed to exotic cars says to just go with a 335i. It goes against my instinct but it may just be the smarter choice in the long run...
