Which parts had to be replaced? Springs? Shocks? What were the symptoms?
Battle scars my friend. Nothing a little bit of Dr.Colorchip can't fix. I've already blended it in and you can't even tell they are there anymore.

M3 Daily Driver

My M3 is my daily driver except when I'm going on a job site when the pickup truck is in order.

Do any of you guys have higher mileage on your e9X m's? I'm assuming 08-10 models with any major issues?

Daily driver, and only car (right now), as well. Had mine since July/August, almost 5k miles on it now.

Been nothing but awesome. It's comfortable, fast, sounds great, exciting and engaging to drive.

M3 is a great daily driver. You'll be at a gas pump more than a honda civic/toyota camry driver would be but the drives are far more enjoyable. You only live once and will spend a about 5-7% of your life in the car. It is worth it to drive what you want, as often as you want, within your financial limits. Enjoy!

I daily drive from march till november, at least 2k per month and its a great daily drive. Halsted sucks but everything else is an easy drive. I decided to get a winter suv which is a piece crap but if someone slides into me in snow i wont really care.

True! Always wanted an m3 and I really started to love bmw during the e46-e90 days and the current m3 has always been a dream of mine.

Just had the drive shaft replaced, other than that just routine maintenance.

Lol it's not a Ferrari. Drive the thing. You think they give free maintenance for 4 years if it was going to be fragile? It's just like any other bmw in that respect. Drive it.

I mean seriously, 6 and 7 series non m can cost 150k abouts. You think the CEOs that buy those refuse to drive them just because they cost a lot? Pfft. If they were that unreliable the company would be out of business.

Eddien123...def a DD. That's what I use it for. I have 11k on the clock and only issue I had is fuel management computer had to be replaced after computer read "High CO2 emissions". This of course was under warranty. Putting a few gallons of race fuel at the track when I was on E maybe was the cause, but I wasn't going to tell my dealer that.

Other than that no issues.

Daily driver '09, currently have about 66k miles on it. It's great even in stop-and-go traffic (DCT), and makes the winding roads around here much more interesting

Total maintenance / issues have been:
  • Normal 30k and 60k service. Talked my dealer into getting pretty close to a local indie shop for both
  • Cracked rear wheel #(, replaced under warranty
  • Had to have the top adjusted once, also under warranty
  • Just got my first low battery indicator today, new battery probably coming
  • Lots of tires

Cheers

Also being in NJ, I daily drive my M3
Although I have another car to drive, so far I used my car on daily commute, outing to NYC, in all seasons (winter)
It's definitely capable as a DD, just sucks up on gas much. On the gas part, I just think I'm driving my old 99 Pathfiner lol...

The m3 is so awesome because it is a great dd and track / weekend car

It's perfect for those of us who need one car to do it all.

For a weekend only car? Many better options for the money to me

So is it 15 minutes, or 2 minutes tops? Not only are you contradicting your previous statement, you are contradicting yourself again, this time within the same run-on sentence. Then again, considering you type like an adolescent girl texts, I wouldn't be surprised if even you have no idea what the hell you're saying.

Whatever angle you look at it from, you've gone full retard. And you should never go full retard.

Pretty sure the M3 doesn't like 15 minutes of needless idle too. Just drive the car to warm it up bro, the engine, your wallet and the environment will thank you.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.
