Mein Auto: 2007 335i
08 m3 with 63k miles- reliability?

Just sold my 07 335i auto and looking at either a 2010 335i man with M- sport OR an 08 m3 man with 63k miles. I will put probably 15k on per year. I really want the M but dont want to face an engine rebuild at 100k. Any ideas on reliability?

One owner car with mostly highway miles. no upgrades.

Thanks

By all accounts I've seen, these engines are pretty reliable, assuming reasonable service.

Highway miles are probably the best kind, from a wear perspective.

I'd have no problems buying a high mileage M3.

Bear in mind there was a big upgrage in idrive in '09, if that is important to you.
