Only because a car is lowered suspension shouldn't fall apart.

So I tested it. It was still loosing pressure slightly when it was empty. But once I filled it up, it kept 1.7bar nicely for like 10 minutes.

Everything works and looks normal now. Oil is clean,...

I don't get this logic either. Only obvious issues surface right after purchase. Hiddens remain hidden until they cause an issue. A visible cracked frame suggests there is more under the hood.

Tesla got away with many things without recalls. Battery issue is a clear example of that. Model 3 missing/loose suspension bolts. I guess this latter stayed under the radar because there aren't many...

Still factory bushings.

This cracking issue happens to manuals and M3s. Rare to see them on automatics as these latter build up the torque smoother.

That guy doesn't sound credible. Right after that sentence he says every E46 he saw had this issue. Yeah. Maybe mine too which is well past 200k mi, must be an invisible issue then. Since I don't see...

Yeah, that subframe cracking is horrible. Usually seen on cars of 10+ years old, rather 15.

Meanwhile Tesla doesn't have issues with delivering cracked new cars

What? You needed a fart app?

There are things which even OTA can't solve

It already behaves the way I like from the factory. So can't care less about OTA. Tesla needed OTA because they want to ship beta versions years before the design is completed.

I have active sway bars on the 550i. Has no tilt in the curves. Even this car feels better than the Model 3.

I don't know how to describe the difference. I feel more in control.

They do compare. I drove the 2018 M3 and the Model 3 perf around the same time when they came out. M3 handles much better. The only pro for the Model 3 was the acceleration. Rest is a meh.

Timing error is likely when the chain tensioner breaks.

The engine was running on lower oil pressure though. That's not fun.

Not sure where you live but here in California most car brands are available on Turo. Even few years old 911s, 2017 is the newest I found.

US law isn't clear to me. But I'm originally from Europe. Over there every replacement part comes with the original warranty. If engine blows at 50k, then the warranty starts over, so it will be good...

I'm at 115k mi now. I spend money on maintenance based on a schedule so I do a lot of preventive maintenance and use BMW parts only. If I summed that up, must be a lot of money. Did water pump,...

Wow, I have never seen such move. But Tesla is the best.

Shortened warranty on a problematic part. On the older S people kept replacing drive units under warranty every 60k mi. Looks like Tesla...

It's not about extended warranty. If cars fail likely at around 70-80k mi second owners don't want to pay much for the lease end cars so leasing of a new car becomes expensive hurting sales.
