    They are a high maintenance machine, or can be. The posts above mention that you should consider an extended warranty when yours comes to an end in 3 years.

    Enjoy
    Hi Mark,

    It's the later twin scroll turbo

    I will extend the warranty when it runs out... If I keep the car that long :p

    Thanks.

    Really excited to get behind the wheel of a 3.0 turbo RWD sport automatic transmission

    It's not the 'M1' but the 'M135i' (it's a bit like a hatchback version).

    It has the new N55 3.0 v6 single 'Twin scroll' turbo and I have spec'd it with the 8 speed auto 320BHP.

    Been driving RWD for 23 years. Never found the need for them

    You might want to book yourself some skid pad training in a RWD
