Ditto. I think the engine will be a classic and was a critical
part of my calculus in buying this gen M3.
But I do use mine and put up 12k+ / yr. Stone chips etc - it could not remain pristine as some have theirs.
I'm also thinking of a 991 CS. It's sticking to its classic formula (NA boxer-6). I love the V8 and don't want to go turbo 6.
