    New to the forum and looking for advice
    Looking for an e36/e46 for the summer the only problem is that all the e36 ads i have seen show cars with 120,000miles on the clock and insurance is still a bit high for e46 M3's cause im 22yo.

    Are there any issues with high mileage e36 m3s or are they pretty bulletproof?

    Thanks

    Jack

    Yep, most of the racers will be 150k+ as they are bought cheap and stripped out to save money (and weight...) and they live a hard life.

    BMW engines don't have any famous wear issues apart from the Nikasil engines, they will just keep on going and going.
    The 3.0 can sometimes get a big end knock from oil starvation on track days (rare, it's close to pro level side G forces needed) and the 3.2 can have similar problems from its higher rev limit.

    M stands for money if you can't afford the insurance you probably can't afford the maintenance on a high mileage M car.
