Shouldn't have these problems for $37k

2003 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
We have owned this car for about 2 1/2 years now. The styling is sporty and refined. The ride is very comfortable. The size is just right for my wife and I. (No kids.) It just flat out looks good! However, the build quality is somewhat suspect. We have had 3 of the 4 door trim panels break away from their fasteners 4 times now. The latest trip to the dealership they replaced all the wood panel with new ones, feeling the others could have been defective. Who knows but we should not have had to make 4 trips to get it done. Also, the transmission went out on us at 31,000 miles. They said it was a computer malfunction.
1. It's fun to drive. 2. It looks great! 3. The automatic headlights and windshield wipers.
Quality control should be improved. The build quality is laking and the fit and finish needs work. We will look at the 2006 models when our lease is up but I'm just a little skeptical.
