How many e90's without any issues?

Are there e90 owners out there that have experience trouble free driving? If not how about something minor and how many kms do you have currently?

2006 330i, currently 22k miles:
1. Adaptive Head light replaced (warranty) - broken due to driving over a large pothole
2. (i-drive) Software updated due to steering wheel error - error disappeard but lound unlocking stayed.
3. Upper part of steering wheel column replaced due to item 2.
4. Hard brake pedal on cold starts, Service Bulletin executed that replaced a vacuum brake valve
5. Cylinder head replacement executed after valve ticking complaint with unsuccessfull "bleed" procedure

Happy with the standard 4 year warranty, still love the ride, planning to keep it at least a few more years, no plans for extending the warranty/maintenance - too much $$$.

I had a squeaky clutch pedal after 13,000 miles - fixed with a little lube. Other than that it's been perfect.

Other than routine maintenance (oil changes, etc.), the only two problems have been the weather strip around the rear window coming unglued and replacing the drivers door arm rest as the plastic was peeling. (both covered by warranty)

No mechanical or electrical problems, after 23k miles and 33 months of ownership.♠

no problems at all. Except that one time I broke the drive shaft coupling at the diff. 34k miles so far. Oh, and I think my car gets pushed a bit harder than the normal e90.

At 79,000 miles the only build issues I've had are:

Squeaking steering wheel (no way was I going to let BMW put a new steering shaft in). It's pretty much gone away now.

Steering lock malfunction (SW update sort of fixed it)

HVAC blower motor squealed in very cold temps (now has gone away)

Flawless otherwise.

2008 328iT -- one oil change, a couple of sets of windshield wipers, and the leather on the driver's seat back was replaced because of wear on the side bolster.

A few problems that were all due to other idiots (including the owner), not BMW.

Everything is great except for one fuel sensor being replaced for misreads.
