This is the thing, maintenance. You don't want it after the warranty ends because the maintenance issues will creep up on you with oil leaks being the biggest problem. It's nothing to have a 5-figure repair on one of these, and I'm not kidding. Now when the cars are in top-notch condition, they're a dream to drive with an engine hum/whine that's intoxicating.
