not necessarily!.... i would make sure this vital first service has been done by BMW before parting with cash, there is plenty of choice out there at the moment so don't jump in if you are in any doubt.

M3's aside, when I have been looking at cars in general, more often than not, the running in service is missing but thereafter the sevices are complete. I can't understand why such services are ignored especially as they are usually free of labour.
