This is my 19K mile update to the original review. While the car is still fun and entertaining, I am very thankful it is under warranty. So, far, replacements have been required for the high-pressure fuel pump, 4 of 6 injectors, front brake apds (horrendous squealing), both tail light assemblies, the right rear window (due to attached gasket coming loose) & seat belts. Several of these were recalls or factory bulletins, acted upon in some cases while my car was in for normal service. The brakes and rear window weren't, though. I was surprised that the fix for the gasket coming loose on the window was a whole window replacement, but it was on BMW, so... In addition to the above, the passenger front power window seemed to lose it's programming a couple of times, and would try to close too high, then drop back down. Two dealer visits to fix that one. I get a real chuckle when I see the BMW ad with the "owner" (actor) stating that, "Everything is perfectly engineered." Right, except when it isn't. Mind you, none of these fixes cost me a nickel, and since this car is leased, I won't be owning it after the warranty expires. But one has to question if it would be wise to own one of these outside any sort of warranty period, and even free fixes are still a PITA since repeated extra visits to the dealer are not exactly what I like to do with my time.Report it
