Nope, the 08s were extremely reliable. BMW did an amazing job considering the trans was their first crack at DCT. One or two software updates, but no more than an hr or two at the dealer for that.

Only annoyance for 08 drivers was that the disc navi changed to the hard drive version for MY09, but this was an across the board BMW 09 change so I wouldn't expect it to happen again on the next generation M3.

I'll be getting a first MY car when the next one comes, and I'm not at all concerned about it.
