I did own only 1 BMW and it was 750iL from 1990's.
Water pump broke. It was $700 + 2 days of labor.
The $3.99 cork oil pan gaskets could not hold the oil NEVER.
Than the car would not pass the smog.
"Lifetime" spark plug harness was $1400.
I would assume, that lifetime apply to warranty, but not on BMW.
Nice car for driving, but parking a block from your friends to not leave them oil puddles got annoying.
Give us more feedback how it turns out for you?
