In fact, my very first E36 M3 had 14k on it-if my memory serves me right. I loved every minute of it. The smile that I had driving back home that night was unexplainable.
I know the feeling

here is what I am thinking. Some of you guys need to grow up on this forum.
If you don't like this thread, then don't indulge your two worthless pennies.

Got mine special ordered and brand new in June 2008 .

That new car smell compared to years of accumulated farts is worth every depreciation penny

Very few cars would be sold when less than three years old, and given they are still making then and only in the fifth year of production, most would be purchased new.

You'll make the next owner extremely happy that you didn't rack up the miles. We, the smart buyers, thank you.

Do you guys who insist on buying new also insist on new construction houses?

There won't be a next owner unless there is a 911 I can't resist. If that happens I think a very low mileage M3 will be desirable and put me in an enviable position to make that purchase.

From new here, it is nice to know what exactly has happened to the car through its life and spec'ing it out to exactly how I wanted it, be it at a cost!

I thought the e92 came out in 2008. And how does your car still have the warranty if it has 200K?

Quite very simple, he looks after his car and has taken out the extended warranties.

Our last poll was over 370 so I must asume that everyone here that voted actually purchased the M3 the rest (not voted) must have leased there M3 Hmmm

Perhaps my poll question should have read ....

How young was your M3 at Purchase or Lease

2008 BMW E92 M3  [0.00]
Got my 08 E92 3 weeks ago. It's 3 years, 3 months old with 60k kms. A series of lucky circumstances got this beauty to me with extended warranty until Feb 2015 for much less than half what it sold for new. There are great advantages to new and also to used. I couldn't be happier with my Little Monster.
