What parts have you had to replace on your BMW so far?

Just wondering what everyone has spent and had to replace so far in owning their BMW.

I have an 07 328i sedan with over 67k miles and owned it since 9-2010.

I have had to replace all my brake pads, thermostat, starter, Valve Cover Gasket, Oil Vapor Hose, 2 rear tires plus all the regular maintenance stuff like oil, and air filters.

09 328i convertible 23k miles. Had the steering wheel replace. The stitching was coming apart, & the BMW emblem was fading.

Honestly it's a hit or miss. Leaks DV's are much cheaper and easier to replace than the CP though

Tune dousn't matter, it's the amount of boost you are running. I would imagine this is a bigger problem on COBB cars though since they boost higher than the JuiceBoxes

Garage List
Driver's side power seat control module. Shorted out and tried to squash me against the steering wheel. Luckily I was in a parking lot at the time. Dumbest reason for a tow ever! This was at about 5K miles.

Word to the wise - if your power seat control starts acting odd, leave it the heck alone until you can get it looked at, or are at home at least. Mine started by only moving forward no matter which direction I pushed the controls. I kept messing with it until it was a little too far forward for comfort, then hit the memory button thinking it would put it back. It then proceeded to go all the way forward, and the magic smoke came out of the control box. Did not blow the fuse.

Forgot I also had to replace my rear power window regulator and front windshield-to replace the falling apart rubber seal at the top. Also my cup holder closest to driver side broke and my windshield washer pump that just started leaking out of the blue from the actual pump, not the seal.
