    Check this and then buy a Porsche or Maserati!!
    These cars at list last more then 5000-8000 miles with out to blow the engine.
    bmw have major problems with this engines but they pays a lot of $$$ to kip things quite. All the cars are new!!!! And there are several owner that have had again the problem after they put in a new engine!!
    Off course the Bmw dealers are doing every thing to make look that the unlucky owner have drove the car very fast and etc.. What the hell, you spend $75000 for this type of cars to drive like my grandfather?
    The think is that this corporations do what the heck they want!!
    They suck and who is paying is the poor idiot that believe in this s... product! I have to tell to all the BMW fan that the reliability and all this stories about German cars are very far from reality seen years! Beside they also sucks in Formula one big time blowing engines there too!
    I have a 325 94 model that is loosing peaces in the street and I do not know how much we spend in this thing. I could have buy it twice.
    I have friends that where telling me: buy an M3 and sell the Maserati 224 they are less problematic. Thanks Good they never convince me and I still have my 10 years old Masa running perfectly after 130000km. My friend have already sold the m3 4 years ago, after 2 blown engines one at 22000km and the other after 6 month they replace it. He will never buy again an m3!Beside when we where driving in the Autostrada I onestly tell you that only few times he was able to be in front.
    Most of the ime was always looking at my Masa rear lights.
    0,5 seconds of difference on paper do not realy show up when you drive on a Hiway but 16000 dollars engines are making a big difference in your wallet. Beside the unconfortable feeling that you will stend in the midle of the street wheiting for a towtruck to give you a ride he He.
    Good luck for actual owner I realy hope that you will not have any of those problems.

    that's what i've been telling these people...
    jd power ranked BMW 12th....
    behind Jaguar, Lincoln, Mercury and VOlvo,
    and just ahead of 13th place Ford.
    you know you're in trouble, when Ford is a close competitor in terms of reliability and durablity.

    BMWs have nothing wrong with them, someone obviously screwed up some where no there stats, they make very reliable racing cars, hell they got the powerfullest F1 motor. they power a McLaren F1 road car. one of the fastest in the world, so wat is wrong with BMW? there not perfect, but who is? NO ONE, everyone makes mistakes, if this cars engine dont last long, back to the drawing boards then, after all, this car company is one of the leaders in car design.
     
  4. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    I dont understand you people. Are you trying to say ALOT of people are stupid because BMW sells ALOT of cars. They are top of the line world class quality cars. Obviously you morons are in the wrong forum.
     
  5. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    So what? If you have the money for a new Bimmer, you have the money to repair it!
     
  6. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    No you dont understand, since BMW designed their new V8 they've been having alot of problems in terms of reliability
     
  7. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    the McLaren f1 car was a disaster in terms of reliable and engine management, one reason why McLaren said good bye to BMW, BMW engines have been good for short term high performance, but not necessarily for durability.
    reports shown this.
     
  8. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    they're faily good with their inline 6's which ironically enough a good portion of them is not made in germany but in the UK.
    and their v8 built in germany, are having the most problems.
     
  9. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    Well a friend of mine has blown to of his engines in the current new M3, and he has only had it from new for 4 months.:p
     
  10. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    haha if someone wants to give me a bimmer, i'll take it. its probably alot more reliable than my car. and if you can afford this car then you definetly are able to afford any repairs for it.
     
  11. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    in my opionion BMW is one of the best overall companies out there i mean they make the safest cars out there the make some of the best looking cars out there the make the best looking SUV out there and their performance isnt bad either so stop dissrespecting BMW
     
  12. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    i agree, they also pack luxury in a sports car, not forgetting they're still lighter than yank tanks even with all those luxuries already in 'em, bro

    one day the m3 will be mine, I will not save my money when I have it.
     
  16. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    is it just me or is the spelling and grammar in this forum utterly terrible, even for internet standards?
     
  17. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    Yes, you're right; half of these posts are apparently not written in English. I think the problem is that most of these Maserati, BMW and Corvette owners are referring to the cars they "drive" in GT3 when they should be at school.

    Look at this:

    "I have friends that where telling me: buy an M3 and sell the Maserati 224 they are less problematic. Thanks Good they never convince me"

    Does anyone seriously believe that someone capable of writing this illiterate drivel can earn enough money to buy ANY car? I don't.
     
  18. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    yo shut the F*CK up all of you people sayin an m3 isnt safe and saying sh*t about bmw. As far as i know my dad has a 2002 bmw m3 with 31000 miles on it and so far he hasn't had one problem with it, these retards who blew their engines were probably too cheap to buy the right oil or gas because if any one knew anything about bmw engines you would know that they need special treatment and care, they need a really expensive oil and also unleaded gas. and also you were saying that bmw isnt doing good in f1 and they blow up engines all the time, the only reason that happens is because this idiot juan pablo montoya doesnt know that the engine has a limit and that if the needle goes into the red the engine will blow up and also another reason bmw isnt doing good in f1 is because they are racing ferrari f1 and schumacher and against that combination no car company can win.

    I love your movie pic
     
  20. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    Hey mother #$%#er, Ford owns Jaguar so don't be talking trash. I mean I love Jaguar and Ford makes good trucks but ignorant people like you who can't see another car for what it is (besides your favorite company, of course) can just #$%# off!!!
     
  21. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    How in the world can you blow an M3 engine in 4 months? everybody knows you must not put the pedal to the metal when your car's just left the factory. And even when you've driven in your engine, these engines need to warm up everytime you start them. When you fire up your M3 in the morning the RPM redline is displayed at 4500 RPM. When the engine's heating up the redline comes higher in the revband. Only when the engine is on its optimum temperature then you can nail it. This is a racing-engine, remember?!?
     
  22. Re: Do not buy any M3 safe your money!!!!

    Can i pls ask you how your friend drives the car,because i am thinking he probably red lines the car at every robot.How do you blow two engines in such a short period of time,something is not wrong with the engine but with your friend and the way he drives.And by the way pls learn how to spell,BMW RULES.
     
  23. M3 ARE ONE OF THE MOST RELIBLE CARS OUT THERE.......POWER....STYLE...THE WHOLE PACKAGE....I HAVE AN E30 M3 AND E46.....MY E30 IS STILL RUNNING HARD AS HELL....THATS WHY BMW IS THE ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE............BUT ALL DEPENDS ON WHAT U LOOK FOR
     
  24. This part of the forums is also filled with complete idiots
     
  25. I had a 92 bimmer 3 with 100,000 kms on it in under 2 year of owning it...(i bought it used). i had spent at least half of what i paid for it just to keep it running. it was an amazing car when it ran but its just not enough to make up for getting it towed all of the time. i have talked to a lot of people who have newer bimmers and i hear the same stories over and over these cars come with an expiry date 4 years old then get rid of it..
