An E90 Long Term Problems Log

I'm interested in hearing from owners who have driven their E90 up over warranty limits of 50 to 100k miles, and beyond. All my research says if you do proper fluid changes and maintenance (the OLD schedule- not the new, BS one with too-long intervals), there shouldn't be issues. I'm just shy of 50 and have been problem free so far.

So what's happened to your car since you hit 50,000 miles?

Gave back my E90 325i with over 80,000km (which is over warranty up here in Canada).

No problems whatsoever. If I kept the car, I was going to do a full fluid change (including tranny flush and replace with Redline) at my local garage. That's about it.
