I picked up a 128i a while ago - fantastic, fun car. But... it is not built as well as the E46. Everything is just a little bit cheaper, you can see where corners were cut to reduce cost and/or...

Even if your car in not on the list today, you should check back in a week or two - more cars will be added as time goes by. The list is continually expanding.
