Any misgivings about the new engine? Do you think it'll as refined as we hope it to be?
My 96 328 Had a lot of problems, brake rotors, alarm, radio, clutch, etc.. That was the first year of the 328.

My 01 330 had many problems, brake rotors, control arm bushings, AC oder, sunroof module, steering rack, clutch. That was the first year of the 330 and I had the car less than 2 years

So as you can see, many issues in the first model year.
