View Full Version : New to BMWs

Hello everyone!

I am in the market for my first BMW. I live in MD and I am looking at M3s. I currently drive a 2006 Mustang and I will be selling that or trading it in towards a M3.

I am going to see one Friday, north of Philly. It has about 60K miles on it. It is a certified 2006 couple with the SMG transmission. I intend to use the car as a daily drive and not to race so I am nervous about spending a lot of money on a car with that many miles on it. What are your thoughts? What do I need to look out for? Is it worth looking at an M3 with that many miles on it? Any advice that you can give to someone who is new to a BMW would be immensely appreciated.

Thanks so much!

60k miles is just broken in!! the s54 engine is fairly bulletproof, whoever not sure about the long term viability of SMG. couldn't find a manual?
