Great thread... glad it has some traction, unlike my previous attempt!

Please post here if you have reached 100k miles and also indicate any note worthy issues that came up.

Im at 56k and plan on keeping this car up to 150k at least. Hopefully longer. Eventually, it will become my "beater" when I pick up a pure sports car for fun on the weekends...

Until then, I pretty much baby it for the most part.

It totally depends on how you treat your car. You can drive your car aggressively but you have to make sure to keep a few things in mind:

- Never stress your motor without getting the oil up to temperature.
- Be mindful that stock cooling is made for occasional bursts of speed, not constant flogging.
- Engines need to stretch their legs once in a while. Not too much, not too little.
- If you drive you car hard, you also have to shorten the service intervals. If you don't ignore little problems and get them fixed right away, most modern engines should easily last 150-200k miles.

Weird, I wrote a reply and submitted but it's not showing up...attempt #2:

I'm at around 95k on my '13 335, had it since around 52k.

Walnut blasted at just over 60k under the assumption that the previous owner didn't do it.

Replaced my plugs and coils at around 83k, strictly preventative and I went one step colder to go with my tune.

Replaced my oil filter housing and oil cooler gaskets at around 88k because the leak had gotten pretty bad and oil had gotten into my coolant, so I did a coolant flush at the same time.

Other than that, a couple sets of rear tires, front and rear brake pads, and oil changes every 5-6k miles. 100k will be a milestone but I took my E46 330ci beyond 100k and was far less on top of the maintenance with it.

Did the tech see any carbon buildup during walnut blast? How much was the job?

It actually wasn't too bad, based on the before & after pics they took. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find those pics. I paid $350.

Wow $350 is a great price. Which bay area shop did the work?

And have u done AT fluid + filter change yet? Some said do it at 60k, dealers say 100k is ok.

It was a shop in Fremont called BoostHaus. Just a few guys, seemingly trying break into the mod/repair business but I guess it didn't pan out because they're closed now.

As for AT fluid service, not yet. I'll probably get it taken care of later in the year, closer to the 100k mark. Unfortunately, from what I've seen, it's a pretty involved project, so while I've done all my installs and maintenance myself (minus the blasting), I'll probably have to take it in to get the zf serviced.

Yes the ZF service is very complicated, to the extent it may cause me to sell the car by 100k miles.

For sure it won't be serviced@60k as the car is working so well right now.

ZF manufacturer said 80km to 120km or 8 years. Thats 60 to 75k miles....or 8 years😁. Its not that hard. There are kits out there.

57k on mine mine, bought it at 52, did the trans service (7 qt's of fluid and new OE pan), an alignment (front tension arm bushings are already shot), diff fluid change and put some new oil in it. In the 2 months I've owned it, I've put about 4000 miles on it, averages about 35-36mpg on the highway, absolutely can not ask for more. Quite a nice upgrade from my M5.

I'm at 110k and mildly tuned since 5k and no issues at all and I drive it quite spirited almost all the time, only thing starting to wear quick are some interior pieces, specifically my driver side door pull and recently my drivers outside door handle stopped working, I believe its the wire that pulls the latch that either broke or came out, has anybody else had this problem???

Yep, that's the Bowden cable I believe.

you need to specify your model
F30 involves the N20/N26 and N55 ... now B48 and B58 engines

i've seen many people say the N20/26 engine isn't a proven platform ... i guess a thread like this will tell
