M3 is 6 years old as stated and no warranty.M products are always $$$$ to maintain. However 335 has had some turbo issues recently from what my bmw tech buddies tell me. I get the low down all the time from the shop seeing I practically live there. 135 is cool because it's a compact with the same power but chinsy on the options seeing it's a bit smaller. for a few bucks more why not get a 3 series. More bang for your buck. it also has sexier lines.
Ya I heard this from my buddy that works at a dealer too, they have been getting a lot of cars with turbo related issues.
