Looking at a couple of pre-owned M3s

Hi,

I'm looking for some advice on mileage on the e92 M3. I've been looking at two specific models for sale. One has 30k miles on it the other has 12k miles on it. Obviously there's a noticable price difference on the two, but what are your thoughts out there? Does the car hold up well to the miles?

Thanks,
Jesper Hvid

well, i don't own an E9X M3 yet. But purchasing used cars previously, I would much rather have the higher mileage one. Why? Well, you can drive it, see if there is any flaws, look at service records, take it to a Mechanic, have him do a fast diagnostic. Plus, look at the bright side, you are saving money, and the engine is ready for some serious driving .
GL with your quest.

I guess that makes good sense I think I'll follow your advice. Appreciate it!
