Mine had about 23km on it......I think someone had a nice pre-delivery test drive. Not that I care, I`ve driven her hard for 1,000`s of km`s since then

Mine had 11 miles on it. Which I thought was excessive. Now I don't care. Someone got me closer to the break-in service.

Mine was ordered however it had 14 miles on it when I picked it up. It was more than I anticipated but everything was fine.

Don't have mine yet (special order), however for the benefit of the OP; all Canadian dealerships quote "90km" on their new car sales order forms. Infact, if you look at the online inventories of new vehicles for local dealers, save the demo cars, all of them will read "90km" for mileage. As has been posted above, this is merely a (liability) buffer for the dealer, and as demonstrated, all cars come with far less mileage when new.

Try not to think about it. If you can't help it, then just tell yourself that the miles were put on by concerned engineers who made sure your M3 was perfect and that no one went over 3500 RPM.

Solid advice. Mine was ordered and had 23 miles on it. Seemed large at the time, but that's currently 0.06% of total mileage and falling.

Mine had 21 km on delivery, I thought it was bad but I see it's about average and the car is fine.

Seems like they did the same on the 1 forum, lol
