I am currently in the market for an e46 m3 and was hoping to get some info regarding running costs and servicing.
I am currently looking at a 04 with approx 66k miles on the clock.
Just wondering if anyone has price information for various services, extending the warranty, your avg mpg etc.
I rang Frank Keane BMW and was given an estimate for a basic service €300 + VAT and for inspection 2 which is due after 60k: €1300 + VAT.
This car was just serviced so i presume inspection 2 was already done. I'll check the service history to confirm.
They couldn't check the warranty as they need the chassis number, which i don't have but i'm sure the garage i would be potentially buying from would have the warranty info. Otherwise i can just get the chassis number. Also said you can only renew if it is currently under warranty??
No idea if those prices are expensive or not but have been told to expect the services to be expensive on an M3.
I would be grateful for your feedback, recommendations etc.
