-Exhaust costs 5x what a Mustangs exhaust costs
-Squeaks EVERYWHERE!
-People think your a d-bag because you drive one and they dont
-Seatbelt arms for E92s. Mines been replaced too. Never works. Well, it worked the first time that i used it after replacement, i ended up punching it because i was automically looking for my belt and i forgot it would work this time around.... Ooops
-E90s exist (besides Creaminz's car)
-Dealerships will rob you for an oil change

Yeah, I recall more like $100 even at the dealer, and indy shops haven't been much better. Sad when $58 for an oil change sounds like a bargain...

There is no way the dealer can do it for that. The materials cost at least that much. Got a coupon or something?

Not a coupon, they'll write it up for $57.95....(not M's or diesels). Can't beat it with a stick!

True, I just DIY'd my Nissan, used synth that I bought from BJ's, 6 qts. for $18.95 (I only need 4), and a $3 WIX filter.....that's a $15.63 fully synth oil change!!

I hate the fact that I have a 50% chance of ending up in limp mode when I decide to open it up on an empty highway at 4am with nobody around for miles.

Oh, also that horrific rattle from somewhere in the back of the cabin which began after I installed my downpipes. I assume the bassier tone of the exhaust is doing it, as it's not there at low RPM's. I can't track it down since I'm always driving the car, and have no friends.

1. The piece of $hit GM automatic transmission BMW put in the e90 328i. Not sure if it's in the e91-93 328s...

2. The unrelenting, highly annoying brake squeal.

Location of window buttons
Location of shifter, a bit far from the driver
Cup holders, I liked my e46 cup holders much better
The non-driver centric dash in general
Lack of engine noise at low RPMs (328i)

My e91 has a GM tranny. Worst thing about the car. Aside from the squeaks and rattles, lack of a spare, runflats and gas mileage.

Is that made in China? I think the Buick Regal is assembled in Germany but has a Chinese tranny.

I hate:
The cheap rubber coated interior, heavy brake dust, the fact I need a fully equipped tool box to work on the car, cheap plastic tabs, the magnesium n52 block (no real modifications can be done), horrible mpg, stupid drum style emergency brake!, small center console, not all e9x have rear folding seats, brake squeaks and squealing, no bottom drain bolt on the transmission or diff., the annoying pings on start ups and how expensive it is to replace all of these parts!!
Oh and the open diff. Why couldn't we get a decent one stock like the m3s or 335i's?

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
