    Should bort pretty hard with that intake!

    Oo___oO

    Comment


      Very nice! Saw a convertible M3 of that series for low 30's pre-covid that I was lusting after, wasn't there issues with the bottom end on those engines or something? Or am I thinking of the V10s?

      Comment


        Never been a V10 M3, so not sure man.

        These have 8 throttle and 2 DBW actuators which fail. They also have rod bearings which fail. Both of which have been done on this car luckily. Not expensive, just a chore.

        Yes, it should bort pretty hard

        Someone once asked me if they could use my mower. I said "sure, so long as it doesn't leave my yard"

          Yeah V10 M5 was what I was thinking off. Rod bearings might have been it. If they have been done, then you are golden! Enjoy the borts

            I think prices are currently firm because every youtube review of the CS and Comp are so positive. Hence budget buyers like me keeping the bottom models buoyant.
            The reviews that pitch them and the Supra together, tend to favour the latter. And the CS is way more expensive here than other regions.
            Only in Australia, logic barely applies.

              V10 E60 M5s need rod bearings
              V8 E9x M3s need rod bearings
              6cyl E46 M3s need rod bearings (yes not just the early ones)

              Basically all as semi preventative maintenance these days. Blackstone oil analysis is a good thing to do over a few changes as it may show increases in bearing material.

                What are they made from? Compressed beer cans?

                  Yes, as there are many beer cans to recycle in Hitlerland.

                    Yeah dunno. I'm no bearing expert. High revving atmo engines just tend to use them up a bit? Generally the fix is factory bearing shells so not like anyone else has anything better it seems. We're talking 150-200k sort of mileage.

                    That said, early E46s had a problem that resulted in dealers rebuilding bottom ends due to a supplier issue. I think E9x have a similar problem. But even the good ones longer term just need some maintenance.

                      Living life on the edge of spun bearings between the two cars there mate!

                      Edit:
                      Ok so everyone seems to have already made bearing jokes on this page haha

                        Yah, the V8s seem the be worst in terms of doing them as normal maintenance. The S54 and the S85 just seem to need it later in life too.

                          Ah ok, I thought you meant the V8s

                          I got a mate with a 230,000ish km E46 M3 who is doing the bearings now as a precaution.. still drives pretty mint last I was in it!

                              Entirely depends how the car was treated. More lease suit idiots are likely to belt a M3 esp without sufficient warmup and carry on like a complete clown than a M5 before ridding any responsibility 3 years in ownership.
