I agree, my past two e92 m3s have been fully loaded CPOs with less than 10,000 miles. About 50,000 combined miles between the 2 and not one issue, knock on wood.
Also, everyone needs to remember that every beautiful car on the forum isn't a "real world car." Many of them are shop/sponsor cars and it would be extremely difficult for the average person to keep up. That being said, I'm still guilty of dumping the majority of my available funds into cars and bikes.
