I have always been fascinated with BMW's but had never owned one until this summer. I will admit there are times of frustration but there are also times where I appreciate it's character and that of other models. I have seen some really nice cars, older BMW models in great shape and high mileage ones running strong. I have heard horror stories and maintenance/repair nightmares and I have also heard of problemless/run forever like new BMW's.
Post up stories and pics of your experience.
Here is mine:
2002 BMW 330Ci in Steel Gray Metallic. CFO's company car one owner purchased in August 2012 with 53,888 miles. The car was bone stock
What have I fixed/had issues with/maintenance?
Currently has 64,700 miles
-Cooling system overhaul at 58,000
which consisted of:
-uppper and lower radiator hoses
-Brembo blank rotors
-PF Z rated pads
-ATE Super blue fluid
Xenons are a PITA, they work when they feel like it, I can start the car up and they both work, one, or none... the car reaches op temp and I turn it off and on again and they both work, or one, or none... I love Xenons but this is annoying.
WHAT HAVE I DONE?
-Style 68 wheels seen in picture? GONE
-Bought a set of Style 67 Forged 19' M3 wheels (4 fronts) offset 47
-Painted kidney grilles black which I hate at times and love at times
-That is it
