Dear Mr. Mills,

I am with BMW of North America and have read internet posting. The M3 is a high performance sports car designed to provide maximum shift efficiency under heavy engine load. To that end, the drive train adjusts through a series of tolerances between the transmission and the differential. Your description has led to the belief that the problem you are concerned about is the gradual transfer of power between these two components. We consider it a unique signature of the M3, an inherent part of a performance car designed for spirited drivers, and completely normal. Should you need any additional information or have any questions or concerns and would like our assistance, please consult with your dealer. Let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

Question:

I have a 2002 M3 on order and expect delivery in March. I have been hearing a LOT of problems arising with the car, especially with the rear differential. Is this issue being addressed? I am VERY close to cancelling my order for fear that my $55K car will be in the shop every month.
