Easing the minds of all BMW E90 owners

This post is for all BMW owners who have that negative mentality placed in the back burner about their car. Reading this, I'm sure you've been in a situation where you're worried about your car breaking down, maintenance cost, warranty, etc. Sometimes you need need some an assurance boost about your choice of vehicle. Don't get me wrong, this forum is a great resource to get answers and assistance, but sometimes you stumble across a post or comment that gets you thinking...

Anyways, lets start with the positivity

I am mapping out right now where to ghost ride my car off a cliff once BMW calls and says they can't find the issue or it's going to be thousands to fix.
But this post sure leaves me positive, I am so glad I made the choice to buy this car. I love shitting away all of my money. Thanks, I feel pretty

i think about this a lot - maintenance costs and repairs, but the truth is I have yet to spend a dollar on my car besides tires. (and mods and car detailing )
also, the frequent tire replacement is my fault

That was awesome, I don't feel so bad anymore that the extended warranty doesn't cover a $3,700 sub-frame replacement if the p/s pulley hits it going over a bump LOL

That's why I bought a 330....
I've since bought a coding cable so hopefully I can do the basics like put in my own battery.
All the electronics vs my e36 scare me.

And the electronics on my E36 scared me after my E30, lol. I'm actually getting used to my E92 after about 6 months
