just out of curiosity...how many people here have had an engine die on them? And I am talking about regular use, not over-revving the engine or anything. I am just curious as to how many cars have had to get their engines replaced and at what mileage?

my dads old 80's 528e blew a piston rod or something...that was after 230K miles

I think bmw's straight 6 is pretty much bulletproof...

I haven't heard of one BMW inline 6 dying of natural causes, and I know a few with over 280,000 miles.
