With that track record I think I'd be ok being the "test subject" for the f-body M3, assuming i can hold out!
Ben sorry to hear about your car and hope you find one you like soon man!
While I agree with your award winning comments, the test subject job isn't about the motor. The primary job duty is to help with all of the electronic gremlins. BMW's are notorious for electronic issues with new releases. If you do some home work and start fact checking with the 2002 E65/66 7 series, you'll soon understand what we are talking about. I know the motors are bullet proof. And I'm not a BMW noob that has heard this somewhere before....I'm 7 cars in the game now since 1999. While I'm hooked on the product, I'm not up for the job of test subject....................Phil
