...new M on the block

...took delivery of my E92 M3 ~ a week ago. Day two...low oil warning; Day three...increased emissions warning (a day in the shop). Do I regret my purchase?...of course not I love this car

congrats.

Don't worry OP, when I bought my Jetta, exactly 2 years ago, first night it overheated on me. Turned out to be a fan switch

^^^ Agreed. Grew up in Converse, after stint in military moved back and lived in New Braunfels. Both great places to live.

*Bonus-New Braunfels: go shopping on a Saturday morning when all the chicas are going to Canyon Lake/Schlitterbahn/Guadalupe River...

Congrats on the new G-ride!

...seems my optimism was a bit premature. Took it out for a short trip to the gas station and my "service engine soon" warning light came back on. "Increased Emissions" has resurfaced after only two days. Is this a sign of things to come?

Dealer will work it all out, I have faith but sorry to hear of your issues.

She'll return the love and more! Awesome ride you have there.
