What the the details about mine? It's a 2003 M3 SMG with: -Shy of 138,000 miles -Had the rod bearing recall done. -A full service history, with BMW until 90k, a handful of indies and then me from 122k on. I've only put Castrol 10W60 and BMW filters on in my ownership. -I've done a few trackdays in it, including a DN at the 'ring. -It was daily driven for over a year and it covered 90k within the first 5 years under the same owner. And how were mine? Not the worst by quite a way, but I'm glad I changed them : Rod Bearings by Charlieboy, on Flickr One bolt however was a pain to remove; mine was on the earlier bolts as well as you can see.
