Don't let your M3 rust away!

For those that don't know or interested in buying a M3 or BMW this winter, know that BMW has a rust warranty that comes with cars from Jan1 2004 to present. So no worries about your BMW rusting to pieces! For people that know please chime in and offer things I missed. I explain more here.

I had a 02 e46 m3 with paint issues... the drivers side mirror was rusted and if you've seen rust it made the paint all bubble up.

The car also had quite a bit of fading in over 10 years/ 90k miles and multiple paint bubbles on the front.

My car still had the paint warranty on it and the rust warranty. I chose not to fix it because the car would then appear repainted. Although it might possibly get worse, I've since sold the car.

I miss the E46 M3! I had a 2003 model, very clean car! Traded it for the E92 M3. Hope you got yourself ///M

I had the E46 M3 for a little over a month or 2k miles. Before that I had a E93 M3 and now I have a F80 M3. Even though I have the new superior car I miss the steering and seats from my old car. What I don't miss is everything else and the milage was so bad.

I miss just driving my older E36 M3 over my E92 M3....but as for comfort and controls....forget it in the E36! I bet that F80 is super nice! I'd opt for the M2 myself but we will see. I didn't pull the trigger this year but maybe next. I want to enjoy some time with no car payments
