I love my 435i with the A8 except for one thing it isn’t a manual transmission. So I’ve been considering a 2013 M3 but I’ve heard about expensive issues like throttle actuators and rod bearing issues what do you see – are these only high mileage issues or not a big deal and how expensive is this?
Hello Mr. Brabender, sorry for the delay, in order to code any options into the car you will need to have or find someone with a BMW coding compatible scan tool. Of course the dealer can do this as well as independent shops that have the tool. As fa as the options that are available it depends on the year, model and the actual hardware installed in the car at the factory, the only way to find out for sure what is available is also with the scan tool. Hope it helps.
