I think he has owned the car for only 7k miles, so we do not know the full history.

Wow shady, you put a good amount of miles on!

Have you done any oil analysis reports to see how your bearings are holding up? I think after reading the bearing wear/failure threads, everyone who owns a high mileage M should keep a eye on their bear wear regardless of production wear as it is not the bearings but the different tolerances that cause wear and eventual failure.

My DCT mechanotronic(sp?) was toast, lost P, just had it replaced, really lucky that my dealer goodwilled that $5K part.

Keep it going!

Perhaps run a Blackstone oil analysis on your next oil change to see how your engine matured..the data would be great for the community to see how a 100k+ motor held up.

I guess take a sample now and hold it in a disposable bottle until blackstone's container arrives.

Looking forward to seeing your results~

60K miles on my '08 e92 M3 and never ever a single problem (and did track lessons)---drive everyday to work (45 mile round trip) except in winter. This is the most problem-free car I've ever had.......
