OMG.

When, precisely, did BMW forget how to make good cars? 1995?

It was a great car to buy new and sell before the warranty ran out!!

It's also a great car to drive or be a passenger in if you don't own it! 😛

I fear for all of the examples out there that are less cared for than your own, buying one these days would seem to be a big risk.

So was the E36/E39 era the last in which BMW built almost bulletproof cars? I'm not sure but since the E46 almost everything seems to have at least one fatal flaw and more problematically most of the flaws seem to be ///M related... 😒

Haven't had much grief with mine in 2 years.  Just a diff seal, P/S seal and a coil so far.

I feel a bit sorry for people that bought them at 4-5 years old before all of the issues were well known and were hit with big repair bills in their first year or 2 of ownership. At least now there is no excuse for being ignorant of the issues before you buy one. Mine has needed some fairly significant wads of cash thrown at it, but nothing unexpected, and i still think they are the best 500 HP car you can get for the money!
