some reassurance please guys

hi I have a 58 plate 320d 177bhp and bought it roughly 10 months ago with 70 k on the clock .

today I've hit 90k and feeling a bit down in the dumps because of the mileage , I know bmws are bullet proof and should see me another 100k easy as I've had bmw's before .

I bought it as it was the business spec and had a Shit load of toys on it and it was an ex BMW management car so its been looked .

at the moment I'm suffering the whole juddering thing that's quite common but I have a new clutch and dual mass waiting to go on

so my question is what ells should I expect to go wrong over the next two years ?

Just standard things mate.

Bushes. Shocks. Springs. Alternator. Pulleys.

Apart fromt hat regular servicing and your new clutch and your good to go for maybe another 50 or even 100k

If it's anything like of last two company BM's. wheel bearings will be moaning soon.

I'd imagine discs are shot. unless you've replaced them already.

my last BMW I imported from south Africa and had the clocks converted and it had 14k on a 95 plate , still had original tyres on from New lol

The mitsu turbo in your ed model (Good choice) is meant to be pretty much bullet proof. I'd imagine that it may eventually go, but the older 07 pate 320d and prior had known turbo issues that could occur from 60k onwards.

I think you've bought a solid car and touch wood will only have wear and tear to deal with until at the least you've doubled the mileage..

Stop worrying, enjoy the car. You can't let the worry of something breaking take away from the joy of owning your car. If/when it goes...worry then. For the moment, it sounds she's been well looked after...so enjoy!
