Got car delivered this time last year, clocked 3,888 miles. Work from home so no commuting for me.

Whose got me beat?

I think my first year I would have had that beaten.....I only have 20,500, and my warranty is expiring in 3 1/2 mos.! But as I learned, low miles is no advantage on a 335, it makes matters worse. Things break later than sooner, i.e. out of warranty, which is what BMW loves.

i.e. it wasn't until 34 mos. that my car became undriveable. If I had put normal miles on it, it would have happened in year 1 instead of year 3.....

so what you are saying is, is that you are just paying up the wazoo for a car that just sits in your garage. very smart. wish I had the balls to pay thousands for stuff I never use.

I have about 4,800 miles in a year. Don't mind the above poster. I have a secondary car and live 3 miles from work.
