55,650 on the clock. Only issue so far was a couple of weeks ago when I had to get the coil on #5 cylinder replaced.

*edit - Also had the diff fluid replaced due to the grinding noise about 4 months ago. All is quiet in my rear now. Uhh...nevermind.

CPO until 4/15 and the maintenance plan to 100K...so far I am a happy camper.

I consider 100k miles on most other cars still pretty low miles. I'd like to be able to think the same on e90 M3s!
117k to date. Still running great. No issues here.

Not an 2008, still noteworthy (our 535is was just one step below then then M5).

Our 1987 535is has nearly 250,000 under her belt. Normal maintenance for that one only ... transmission is having a tiny oil leak we just add oil to avoid a costly repair. My former 2002 M3 an e46 now has a new owner and he is nearing 100K never eny engine or transmission issues major repairs have been replacing the rear springs (one before I sold her to him and he had to change the other one - I am still in touch with him).

January 2008 build. Currently 54k miles and no warranty repairs. Semi-spirited driving, frequent short trips, and occasional highway runs at 80mph. Issue last month with losing clock time and no welcome head or tail lights, but was resolved with a recent 17,000 mile round trip and overnight use of a battery tender. Looking forward to another 50k and beyond.

From reading all of the "I'd never own a BMW out of warranty" comments on the forum, I just assumed the engine seized when you crossed 100k miles? No?

I swear it doesn't feel like I'm spending this much time in my car. I enjoy driving it so much.

2008 m3 e92 6MT
68,000 Klms

It's my daily drive. I drive it pretty hard.
Frequent mountain driving - no track.

Only issue was the hydraulic pump motor for the ABS which was out of warranty.
$4500 installed but BMW AG offered 50pcent off.

How nice.

Enjoy the car fellas.
Replace your oil regularly and get it serviced regularly.
Make sure you let it warm up before getting into it.

Cheers..
