One thing to keep in mind is these cars are over engineered to be a pain for you so you go to the dealer to maintain and fix you car (which you'll be doing a lot of). A new special expensive tool you need to buy or find is always around the corner. Example is a $20 spark plug socket or $55 front turn signal bulb. Be ready to spend on repairs on a older year once common problems are taken care of (which there are many) they perform great.
I would never take an out of warranty BMW to the dealer.
