All -

I'm new to the forum and was looking to get your expert advice. Thinking about dumping my Wrangler for an M3 and found a '98 Titanium Silver 5sp. with about 35K for sale. The guy is selling it for about $3K under KBB retail.

The CarFax is clean... dealer service list is clean, and the car is in immaculate condition. The interior is flawless. My payments won't go up too much and insurance will be about the same.

My question is this: how much do they cost to service? Have you run into any problems with yours? My Jeep has needed little to no work, and I know that servicing it at the dealer is going to cost a ton... so what should I expect?

Any help is appreciated.

Greg

Are you looking at a 98 M3 or M-roadster? My 98 M3 with 64k has been running well. Besides wear and tear parts, other non-warrantee work includes:

Rear shock tower replacement - both sides
Leak at lower pressure end of power steering pump hose

My wife's 99 M-roadster with 47k (other than wear and tear items) has been rock solid.

that's it!
