That is why I say this car needs nothing and shouldn't for awhile. Mind you, this is a BMW, and also a M at that; so plan to turn your wallet upside down and give it a shake every so often. The car game is a disease some of us are plagued with. I need an intervention. Lol.
true story - of course there will be things that go on the car in the next few thousand kms and need work - but good luck finding something out there that has been maintained in this condition for this price..
