The F8x chassis and S55 engine are pretty bulletproof. If you tune it you’ll need to do the crankhub. Otherwise there are no real common failure points like on prior generations.

For all the time I’ve had it, only took a handful of pictures. Never figured the pandemic would wipe out all my driving less than a year of owning it haha. I got it April 2019 so the warranty still runs until April 2023

Agree with MD1 - no major issues that I’m aware of. Placement of oil radiator is a design flaw but not a problem unless you’re unlucky enough to hit serious road debris. If you’re willing to pay, find a CPO and then pay for (very expensive) bMW extended warranty coverage. Goes up to 7 years I believe. All of that said, if you can swing it and are willing to go m3 over M4, why not get a base manual of the new generation?

I'm currently interviewing for kernel developer positions at #Google and #Apple. Both seem to be going well and I feel I'll be getting an offer soon. Most probably from Apple. I have to say that the location is in Tokyo, where I'm based. Now, tech salaries in Japan are low and I'm therefore wondering if these two companies offer different salaries for the same job across different countries. Should I expect a typical Japanese salary range, considering they're in the same team with the US folks?
