Hello Everyone,

I'm in the process of ordering a new M3 but was comtemplating waiting for the 04 models to come out.

Pros of ordering a 03 MY M3

1. Get it first or second week in June
2. Get a 1k discount
3. Get to take advantage of the 6 year/ 100k mile powertrain warranty.

Cons of ordering a 03 MY M3

1. Have to wait until October for the car
2. 04's might get a facelift.
3. Probably a $600-700 increase in the MSRP (instead of the 1k discount)

This car will be a purchase and not a lease, and I plan on keeping the car for a while.

If you guys/gals were in my shoes what would you do?

Thanks for the help!

According to the post BMW Update for S54 Engines it states "For your information, to maintain customer confidence, the extended warranty on all internal mechanical engine components lubricated by engine oil to 6 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first, will be valid for all model year 2001, 2002 and 2003 M3 coupe/convertible and M roadster/coupe cars equipped with S54 engines. "

From that little tidbit I assume that it does cover ALL MY 03 M3's.

If I am wrong someone please let me know.

TheFallen : I am leaning towards just ordering the 03 ... biggest concern is the possible facelift ... has anyone heard anything about this recently?



Thanks and keep the responses coming ...
