Service History - All stamps pictured - All service requirements pictured
The car has a very low mileage, however this does not make it immune from bearing failure, I couldn’t take the
risk for myself or the next owner as the cost to replace the engine far outweighs the preventative
maintenance. Personally, I would not invest in a V8 M3 without clear evidence of this being done or at
least money set aside to cover the cost of it as quickly as possible after purchase. The good news is that once
done properly the engines are bombproof. I chose a highly regarded specialist in this field to do the work,
using genuine BMW parts I had a full health check carried out and attended to anything advised. The engine
mounts had small splits in the rubber so they were replaced and the power steering system fluid was also
changed. A no holds barred approach to maintenance with oil analysis history with service campaigns.
Current MOT until 08.03.2023

The whole job is fully documented and illustrated in a series of images neatly stored on a USB stick so
there can be no uncertainty. This includes the big end bearing replacement and pictures of crank journal
condition, bearing clearance & bearing condition. All crank journals were found in good condition. All
bearing clearances measure 0.002” which is within manufacturer’s specifications. All bearings removed were
in good condition and have been kept as part of the history. The health check was extensive and found
nothing outstanding on the whole car, I am happy for anyone to speak with the technician.
A thick folder of bills extending to over 8k of recent expenditure, a summary of which is below.

- Road bearings replaced, all gaskets’ seals as above
- PAS fluid changed
- Engine mounts replaced
- Oil and filter changed
- Rear brake pads changed
- Brake caliper replaced
- Inlet manifold replaced
- Oil filter housing gasket replaced
- Aux belts replaced
- Diff input shaft seal replaced
- Diff oil changed
- Air filter, microfilter pollen filter changed
- DSC sensors replaced
- New n/s/f under shield replaced
- Wheel alignment

The body is pristine aside the odd superficial stone chip. The interior is immaculate. The underside is according
to the mastertech the best he has ever seen. I repeat, no jobs outstanding. His comments were the car is superb and
was a total pleasure to work on.

The rims retain a clean-cut diamond finish with next to no marks. The tyres are all the correct matching Michelin
Pilot Super Sport variants thick with tread. Wheel alignment is correct and up to date.

I challenge anyone to find a cleaner straighter more detailed car with a more comprehensive service file with all
jobs done, superb specification and a future proofed engine, it ticks every box.
