Getting a new car

Hopefully I can get an extended warranty because with the m3 it's life saving in some cases and I feel safe knowing I have it I just want to know every how many miles to change oil I've heard anywhere from 7500-15000 and when to change the tires and other money I need to throw it not modding but some more things maybe breaks and stuff!

If you're worried about warranty, them definitely choose the M3. BMW has the best warranty out of all the luxury/sport German brands.

If you're buying a used '13, then you'll have FULL warranty until the build date in 2017 or until 50,000 miles. You can buy the extended warranty until 100K miles for like 2-3K, depending on the dealer. (Extended warranty must be bought before factory warranty runs out.)

If you buy a car next year, you wont have to worry bout getting the extended warranty until at least 2016, depending on the cars in service date. The frozen is pretty cool

Yea unless I love it so much I want to keep it till 2018-19 ill def buy the extended early and this is the type of car the warranty will def be worth seeing as maintaining it is expensive! But well see what are people averaging on mpgs I hear around 16? And 200 miles on the whole tank that's bad but really not bad it will be the same as my business mini van haha!

PS2 unless you're doing something dumb its perfectly fine... I can't comment on other tires. But it was perf in rain except when I was doing 110 in the rain with mdm on and slid around a corner lol


I was taking turns 10-30+mph faster with the m3 over a dinan stage 3 awd 335i so if thats any indication it'll take anything you throw at it especially if you're driving in a reasonable range.

Nice sounds good pretty much m3 will be my next car then after that I'll go for a c63 because I wanted that too but they stopped making the e9x and to me those looked the best final decision is on getting the coupe vs the convertible used they both are almost the same if I find a used frozen edition which are coupes 100% I'm getting it but again it's between those 2 they both are the same except for the 400 pound difference! So well see!!
