I love my 2011 and with the custom spray job, it is one of a kind. So I will be keeping mine. And when the day comes,,,,she will become a full race bike. I might get an HP4 just for the road....lol.

Um, given that BMW have been using this in their cars for four years now, I don't see a huge pile of unwanted, broken M3's knocking around, so on what facts are you basing this statement?

maybe its just me but I have had them fail on BMW, Audi, a Landcruiser and a Jaguar...oh I almost forgot a Range Rover and a Merc. These suspensionsion are great for comfort, ride height, stiffness etc. But on the long run they will fail and fixing them is very expensive.

I've had a similar experience. Also there may not be a pile of them broken, but I'm not sure I could name a single car equipped with one that has decent depreciation on the used market, I think people tend to avoid them due to the whole 'what if' factor.
