90k is right about the mage the gearboxes require a rebuild. 

What BMW is it you have a F80 M3 or M4?

M140. The second service is pretty steep £600ish from BMW. Think the M cars are about 1k for a major service.

Nearly bought a f80 m3 a month ago. Glad we didn't. The crank hub issue and turbos letting go isn't good.

If you decide on an estate.the 3.0 diesel Audi takes some beating. Good to drive and quick with decent mpg. Good luck with whatever car you choose.

They are a nice car, weren’t aware of the issues. The 140 has been faultless, put 41k on it from new 3.5 years ago, never put a foot wrong. If it wasn’t for having a baby, dog and wanting to spend a bit of time travelling around the country I would keep it.

Which company are you using for the warranty? The quote I have is from motoreasy for their top cover.

No idea it comes with the car, 3 months bumper to bumper then an option to purchase the next 9. I'll not know till it comes in the post as they said up to 4 weeks.

Very nice...........but

It surely didn't tick all these boxes.....😉

Must be;

No more than 4 years old.

Good on fuel (120 miles a day commute)

Automatic

Decent inside seen as I spend a couple of hours a day sat there.

Decent power 190bhp+. I’m going from 400~ish 😢.

4wd would be a plus but not essential.

Big enough for dog, baby and stuff for a week away.

Budget 15-20k.

Change of circumstances 😂. Now work from home and we only need one car.
