what is high mileage?

Ok,

so my car is getting to 63k miles. For the first half of it's life the car was babied, and then driven normally. Past 7k i've been SC. I do go to the track at least once a month. I drive the car on the autobahns, and usually take it to 200mph once a week. I change oil at half intervals, and don't redline it. I feel that I take care of my car well, and don't abuse it, but I don't baby it either.

are there any major maintanance that I should be concerned about in the future? How about reliability? Resale?

I'm thinking of selling, so that I can get a low mile c6z06, that way i don't have to be concerned about the mileage, but i just love my m3 soooo much!

I think the highest mileage M3 on this forum is 100k Plus and still running strong.

All I'm saying is that I want to continue to track, and travel without the headache that my car will be worth $20k in next 2 years with 100k miles...

I understand and respect your statement, I hope to offer another perspective.

I SC'd my M3 along with a few other mods so I have created a track/street car that is unique and what I've always wanted. Granted it will continue to depreciate but to me that's irrelevant since I maintain it and know I plan to keep it for a long time. With diligent maintenance I'm hoping that will be 150k+ miles.

I appreciate positive support! That's what I'm looking for...

I love my m3 very very much, but to keep going I need to keep modding (). I need to upgrade the brakes, the suspension, I want the lux lights, I want a cat back, I need track wheels, etc etc... and so far I'm over $15k in... the only thing that bothers me is the high mileage and depriciation that comes with it

Well the depreciation part.... that's why I bought mine used. It has it's plusses and minuses. Honestly, you can't worry about that kind of stuff. Don't turn this car into a garage queen. There are plenty of M3's well on their way to 100k miles.

All cars depreciate so just enjoy it. Proper maintenance will keep you happy for many years to come at bargain price over a new car. Space out your mods so that your car feels a little different every so often. If depreciation is that big a deal to you think about a lease. that way you will not have to guess how much your car will be worth.
