Good move.

I will also add that I was hesitant to buy a used performance ride and tried to take all precautions before purchasing.

This car was purchased new from the dealership I bought it at, serviced religiously (including the extra oil changes), and the dealership gave me a CARFAX, showing nothing but service (including the 1200 mile one). They performed the 36 or 38k service for me, which included the rear differential service, at 28k. The car was immaculate and could've passed for new.

Though I have not stumbled on any Youtube vids of this ride being raced, an engine designed to rev at these limits should not fall apart after being pushed.

*Worth noting, BMW was initially going to send a "remanufactured" engine, but my dealership arranged for a new one. This tells me "at least one other V8 engine" failed somewhere on this planet.
