328xi 6sp got it from bmw dealership with 67k one owner , changed the oil every 5k baby the car that's just how i m. Car was great until it hit 80k first the electric water pump $1300 and got me and my 2year old on the side of the freeway very dangerous on my opinion' called bmw they tell me its a common thing ok... a month later the low warning oil light comes on " head gasket cover leaking oil $1100 call bmw reply again its a common thing 2 weeks later the tesion pully $400" shocks $700 bmw again its a common thing. . Seriuos if its a common thing shouldn't it be recalls.. ps also this parts should not be regular maintenance parts .
Lots better ride ... no plastic pully tesion. ..No electric water pump..better on gas ...more reliable and please a temp gouge ....
I am experiencing the same costly nightmare on my 2007 328i coupe! Water Pump, alternator & and belt tensioner, oil filter housing, radiator reserve tank, profile gaskets, and to top it off....I need new tires. Cost of repairs $3906 plus tires $1200???. 98,000 km with an extended warranty that expired 1/30/2014 that cost me $4000 at 50,000km. That too was a waste of money! to boot, the BMW winter rims and tires that I bought, apparently won't fit the 2014 cars. My advice, don't buy out the lease, don't buy the extended warranty and be willing to pay if you want to drive a Beamer!
