Wow, nice! Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware of how customer-friendly they would be post-sale. Good to know.

When purchased: October 1 2021
Year and Model: 2009 E92 M3 Late March build individual color
Miles: 96666
Options: Fully loaded, carbon roof, rear shade, black interior
Transmission: DCT

$30000 USD

I'm pretty sure this was previously an IND featured build so it had lots of aftermarket goodies and recently had thousands done in maintenance including RB(ACL&ARP)/TA/fuel injectors/plugs/fuel sending unit/fuel breather/fuel pressure sensor/DCT service. PO even gave me a box of unused coils he had bought to troubleshoot what ended up being an unrelated problem.

Sounds like a pretty good deal, do you think they would've covered the rod bearings?

I can verify the same with my Carvana purchase. Only 29k miles on mine and they covered a $7k bill.

While they won't cover rod bearings, since it is preventative, we found that the oil drain nut was stripped and cross-threaded. Silverlight paid for a whole new pan and motor mounts. At that point, I only paid for just the RB parts since the labor was done.

I also had them cover: brand new headlights due to condensation, all four wheels refinished, and diff pinion seals.

I've heard of at least one other m3 with a similar drain nut problem from Carvana. Their in-house mechanics could use some additional training.

I know the car (fairly) well .. a few accidents reported, and unfortunate some cosmetic flaws to add some context; but still an amazing deal nonetheless.

Good deal. One year newer than my E93. I bought mine earlier this year with the same 46k miles; and have really been enjoying it.

Here is mine with the stock wheels.

Very nice.. I just bought a bunch of CF exterior pieces and a Corsa exhaust. I can't wait for Spring so I can deck it out. Next on the list is a supercharger, but that may be a while considering the cost.
