My Ride: truck
69,000 miles- 2 window regulators replaced, 2 horn relays replaced, weather stripping and window trim falling off both side rear windows, noisey mpg gauge, won't go into 1st gear/bad shifting when cold, nearly impossible to modulate clutch effectively when cold, sticky gas pedal, peeling roundels, clunk from front suspension when backing up... sounds like alot but half of that was replaced under warranty, and any car is going to have some issues so i'm really not as upset with my bmw as that list might make you think... but it has definetly given me much more problems in 4 years of absolute pampering and top notch maintaince than my honda del sol did in 13 years of being absolutely ravaged, driven like it was stolen, and had bare minimum or less maintaince performed... but would i buy a bmw again, in a heart beat

01 330ci Jet Black/72K miles (responsible for 2k)/passenger door unlocks when it feels like; when shutting off - the guages (fuel etc.) make noise when they go to the default position; thermostat was changed; may have to replace the steering pump soon; horn sounds weak - must replace; sometimes hear a noise when windows down that seem to go with the tires rolling?? - Pretty solid thus far (knock wood).

My Ride: 99' E46 M52
Nice, most of you have some catching up to do i just rolled over 112k pulling into the school parking lot this morning.

Check engine light very randomly, and turns off after a few miles??? 3 windows are broken, window regulators, Definately Vanos problems only mild when really cold though. Almost everything replaced except suspension, still stock, control arms already replaced. Inspection 2 done at 90K and 8K more miles untill i hit 120K and its time again for Ins 2 All 100K miles maintenance done!!! Damn i dont have $600 for a damn inspection. Other wise runs like a bat outta hell, and i would definately buy another BMW in a heart beat.

Anyone else have more then 112K on their 99' 328?
