The car is very sound (structurally). Reliability is poor. Too many expensive repairs for a expensive car. (radiator, steering, backfire plate, window controller) Think twice about this cas due to high cost of repair.
Great road car when it's running, but
plagued by extremely low realibility
and extremely high repair costs. Bought
this off lease and have had it in shop
at least once every month since for
various things breaking or not working.
The A/C has been repaired twice at
$1800 per trip, and still doesn't work
all the time, new driveline,
suspension, seat motors, DMK motors,
the list is endless. I've paid nearly
as much in repairs as I did for the
car. As soon as the last payment is
made I'm buying a Lexus.
Rear seat leg room, performance, on
Quality control, improved realiability,
better service system.
Love the car, hate the car. Most beautiful car I've
owned. A joy to drive, when everything works.
Replaced 4 window motors, 1 seat motor, a
radiator, 2 water pumps, an alternator, a drive
shaft, a CD player, and dash read outs. The other
day the exterior door handle just came off in my
hand. This car has been maintianed by BMW and
certified mechanics, yet the build quality work
against the owner. It's a shame considering the cost
of the car.
Style. Handling, interior comforts, and surprisingly
good mileage for a car of this size.
BMW should admit to common fails and reimberse
owners. Some of the these repairs are completely
uncalled for, when you consider that we paid
>$60K when new. Old Nissans I've owned have had
better repair experience.
What a dream to drive - if only I could
get it started. I have only owned this
car for 6 months and have had it in the
shop 6 times. The battery keeps
getting drained, the heater needed to
be replaced and the cup-holder replaced
twice. I know the service people on a
first name basis. Not a good sign with
a car that only has 28000 miles on it.
The way it drives - it is a dream.
Smooth comfortable car.
For the money, this car should not have
the problems I've experienced. Better
reliability is a must.
This is the only car I have ever owned that literally falls apart before your eyes. BMW should be ashamed to put such a poor quality car on the market. It's only redeeming quality is that it looks good. The list of things wrong with my car are incredible for a car that has just over 100k on it BMW shame on you.

Air conditioner, trans, suspension. Etc, etc, etc. Ad nauseum.
