Great car but low reliability

ReviewThis was my first BMW, and it was the best car I ever owned -- until its second birthday. Great handling, braking, overall feel. Above average marks on luxury and comfort. No problems until the two year mark, then all sort hit in fairly quick order. Including: electrical system problems stranded me three times in two weeks, rotting trim, radio & climate controls, and computer display panel fading out. Traded car after Internet research - - BMW's OK reliabilty in general but if you get one that goes bad it really goes bad.
Best FeaturesHandling, braking, comfortable seats, zippy pickup.
Worst FeaturesPremium sound good but not "premium" quality. The well documented poor cupholders. Not enough storage space for things like CD's and sunglasses.
