My car runs just fine. Even when something needs replacing, I still enjoy the car.

My Sally-Sue is still running as well as the day I brought her home 12 years ago; getting ready to transfer from Florida back to Maryland so I'm getting her ready for the long road trip.

My car has been great to me! The engine is great and runs awesome, only have had to replace window regulator and a couple other small things need to be done but nothing that takes away from my amazing driving experience with this car!

I'm actually in ft lauderdal for the weekend up from the keys about a two hour drive. First long drive with the new steering wheel. I really enjoy driving my car and has been pretty much maintenance free. About two weeks ago I replace all my fluids and filters and now drives better then it did 19 months ago when I purchased the her.

Just had mine put on a lift to see where she's at. At 158k I'd like to know what's coming up for issues. Top shelf mechanic pulls me into the garage to look the car all over with him. Know what it needs? NADA!! maybe a fuel filter at some point, maybe a bushings before 200k. I love my BMW!

Same thing here. I've done some performance upgrades along the way but not all that much in terms of maintenance except for the most basic things
