I've been looking at M3's for a while and you price is fair compared to what others are asking for 2004's.

Do what one must, at the end of the day KMs break or make the value of a car. At the end of the day, that is what I have seen to count whether it is being sold at the dealer or on private.

ya, i think that would be the price i might sell it at.

although true, maintenance has a lot to do with it (have all receipts and tracking of work done by myself or bimmersport). there are many m3's with half my kms that drive a lot worse i can guarantee that.

explain? BMW requests 25k which is too long in my opinion. i change it in half the time with Castrol Motorsport TWS oil only.

BMW does that to make your car expire faster so that you can purchase a new one from them. Any Motorsport engine should have a 5K oil change interval. TWS is the only oil that should be used for that car and it should be all the time, not half the time only.

No one changes M oil every 5k, unless they really like to toss away money lol. I know a lot of people doing it at 7-7500 MILES, so around 10-12K KMS sounds ok with TSW. Also depends on your driving conditions/habits.

I do mine every 7-8k km. So ya it's 5k miles not kms if that's what you meant.

before this turns into an oil debate, synthetic oil should not be changed at 5000km. the oil doesn't really get used. thanks khurram.

as for my driving habits, i drive the car easy around town. never done burnouts or bounce off the rev limiter. i have done WOT pulls in 2nd and third. motor is super strong. chassis feels very solid too.

I changed the oil on my M3 every 12k kms as well, that's how it should be done.
