20 years from now when 50% of all the new cars will be electric, and gas will be at least $10 per gallon, you may not be able to afford running even one E90 M3, let alone two.

Other moments you may not be looking forward to in a very long term ownership:
- the moment iDrive ties itself in knots for the last time
- the moment BMW no longer provides map updates for the NAV
- rebuilding the EDC suspension at $1k per corner
