Agree the m3 is the best all around car for the money. It may depreciate more than $500.00 per month, but anything over $500.00 per month is worth it just for the excitement factor.

All good things must come to an end...

Just limped back to my house in my new m3 ....was on my way downtown for a quick dinner and then the Dynamo game...I digress ....,computer tells me engine malfunction, reduced power, excessive emissions....( I just reviewed all the posts regarding such....thanks to all those that have contributed in the past.)

Can't tell you how disappointed and sad I am... A night out on the town with my two favorite ladies...turns into limping back to the house 2 miles out...

Favorite lady #1 called the bmw dealership in Torrence CA, to get direction on what to do...pull over on the road to prevent further harm or limp home...after several attempt to reach both sales and service I was put on hold 3 times then hung up on ....called back and told that the reason I was having trouble getting through to anyone was that people were going home early...they closed at 5 it was 4:30 !

Not sure what to expect from here on out but what a disappointment!

P.S.

The car has 631 miles on it... Pitiful...

This will likely be the beginning of the end for me and BMW ...

Not so much that the car had a failure....but at 631 miles and then the total horse dodo run around at the dealership...starting to think I should have bought the porsche...

I feel a little better now that I shared this with y'all...

Happy Fathers Day

Why didn't you call BMW Assist? They are there 24 x 7.

Yes.

It's a car.

Occasionally they break.

Of the options you had, no question calling BMW Assist would have been another choice for you.

Genuinely hope your issue is resolved quickly. Best of luck.

600 miles in and an error and you're jumping ship? i know you are frustrated but stick with it. AT WORST if the car is a lemon (and there are many M3 lemons, in fact i think it's probably the most reliable car int he BMW lineup right now) you'll get a new one. at best its a thrown code that is easily corrected.

either way, what's the point in being so upset? are you going to sell the car at a massive loss?

I agree with Mr C M3. The M3 is a great car and the gas milage is user dependent. I get far better mpg than tose posted in the thread.
