Angry What's Next To Break?

My 2010 335xi with 64,000 miles has been giving me nothing but problems recently. First, my chargepipe ripped itself apart ($500), next I had to replace ignition coils and plugs due to a misfire ($300) which I was not too upset about until I discovered I need to do a VCG. Finally, the car felt like it was running perfect and then my water pump died on my daily commute ($500). My car is on probation if it leaves me stranded within the next 10k miles it's gone. All maintenance is up to date and I am yet to go two weeks without something breaking on me and I just want to know what you guys think is next to go.

BTDT. It all happens around the same time. All normal for this car - did you research prior to purchase? I'd say you have an OFHG, oil pan gasket, pulleys/tensioner, starter and valve blasting in your near future. Not sure if the xi has other issues.

Good news is that once that's all done, you're good to go for quite a while.

N54 walnut blast about 50k
if sport steering wheel, the airbag recall on driver side
didya have the battery cable recall done?

sparkplug replacement was due any way, the other items simply were timed badly for you.

What month was the car put into use originally (not the date of manufacture)...every two years you are supposed to replace the brake fluid because your BMW uses DOT4 brake fluid. The better braking but greater harm by absorbtion of water by DOT4 fluid harms its ability to resist boiling; boiling fluid prevents brakes from stopping your car because the compressive force of the liquid does not press with sufficient force on the brake pads.

The sad part is you really have had only the cheap parts break. $500 is considered just about the minimum I'd say.

$1-2k happens pretty routinely.

Starter = $900. AC compressor = $800. They are all around the corner.

Vacuum leaks, valve cover (mine actually cracked), oil filter housing gasket, oil pan gasket, turbo solenoids. I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

Yes, lots of research prior hoping that I would get lucky and not have these problems. I now know that is not the way to think lol

VRSF charge pipe with Tial BOV, $460ish but rounded to $500 just for effect.
