Junk!!! This is my second BMW and
definately my last. My last BMW 325i
was very expensive to maintain but
more reliable than this! I bought this
car new and since owning it some of
the repairs have been 2 water pumps,
power locks, sensors replaced,
transmission replaced (almost
$10,000), a wheel bearing, and
the list goes on! The regular
maintenance is a nightmare. I've
spent over $1000 at the dealer for
front brake work. My friend owns a
1999 Volvo S80 T6 with more miles and
his car has been great! Regular
maintenance is low and his car is very
reliable. The T6 (twin-turbo) blows
away BMW's V8. The Volvo S80 T6
is a much better choice!
Handling is very good!
Way too unreliable and too expensive
to maintain. Over $150.00 for an oil
change.... and that's the little
maintenance. The bigger services are
an absolute fortune!
