Some people buy their dream car and just parks it inside the garage to look at and admire. (what a waste of a car, go drive it and enjoy it)
Some people buy a high performance car and drive it like a grandma (what a waste of a car.)
Some people are like me, I drive my BMW's the way its designed to be driven and the way its meant to be driven.
I often cruise at high RPM as this is where the most torque is and this is where the V10 engine likes to sing in harmony with my Tubi exhaust.
I shift about 90% of time close to redline as this is where BMW cars especially our V10 peaks its torque output and amazing to hear high RPM just like we like to admire F1 car sound.
I brake hard, I corner hard, accelerate hard and my beast never disappoints. This is why they call our cars The Ultimate Driving Machine.
Drive it hard and you will be impressed.
I dont worry about mileage as I buy a car to drive and enjoy.
I buy BMW's with standard & CPO warranty because I know how expensive it is to maintain and repair our M cars.
I have always known since day 1 that BMW are the most fun cars to drive they are NOT the most reliable car.
If we want reliability - go with Japanese cars.
My Honda Accords lasted 200K miles with almost zero issue except normal wear and tear.
But they are boring to drive.
I dont know how anyone can sue BMW for producing cars with reliability issue. And even if you sue them - I think we will run out of cash before the case ends as they have full time lawyer working for them and we dont, at least I dont.
Buying a BMW is optional. If you dont like it because of its reliability issues - then we dont have to buy it. It is a choice we make.
I drive my beast hard, I enjoy the heck out of it and when it breaks I get it fixed. Life goes on, I consider it money very well spent.
My CPO warranty runs out in September this year. Time to start to decide what my next car would be (under warranty)
