Wanted a BMW for a long time

2002 BMW 3 Series 330i Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


And I finally got one. But at less
than 3k on the odometer, the car dies.
Turns out the instrument cluster was
bad. It was replaced under warranty,
after I had it towed to the dealership
(I had to pay for the cost of towing up
front), but it would have cost me
$600.00 otherwise. Since then, it has
been pretty reliable. But for $40k, I
don't expect anything to go wrong.
After all, my '86 Accord and '90
Integra never had any mechanical
problems until 200k miles. Just
changed the clutch on the Integra at
213k miles.
