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.
Fantastic car to drive! Plenty Leg Room
and comfort features but don't plan on
leaving the repair shop for less than
$1,000 per visit (for instance, I
needed $30.00 in parts and the total
bill was close to $900.00). If you buy
one, do yourself a favor and STRONGLY
consider getting an extended (high
performance) warranty...You WILL forget
about the repair costs while driving
though! The best of the best (unless
you have the pleasure of driving the
this is the ultimate driving
vehicle...the only problem i have is
when i have to put it in the shop for
repairs. expect to dig deep...
nevertheless, when i get back behind
the wheel it seems all worth it.
the 440 watt 14 speaker stereo will
blow you away... i've never been able
to turn mine all the way up... the
handle is like a sports car but a nice
road vehicle all the same
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.
