My cousin's 2000 328Ci step. has 180k miles! You can tell though. Moldings are dry and cracking, and the wear and tear is evident visually, but it runs great!

“Miles matters not. Look at those miles. Judge the car by the miles, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For your miles are the Force, and a powerful ally they are. Miles creates the Force, makes it grow. Their energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings miles are, not crude matter. You must feel the Miles around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, the BMW, everywhere, yes.”

When did you change the thermostat/waterpump? Didn't have to change radiator, tensioners?

:woot: I don't know how you define major problems, in seven years, I 've changed two window regulators, one transmission, one clutch, one A/C compressor, one rear wheel bearing, two sets of front control arm bushings, one cooling fan assembly hood, one set of pulley bearings and lastly the rear differential bushings. I don't consider any of them major, I just think they're the cost of ownership of The Ultimate Driving Machine.

HA! I'm beating you...55.5k.

Here are the issues/what I've done so far:

Bad coil packs (part of the BMW-wide bad batch)
AC recall
2 sets of tires (whooooaaaa my tires were bald):tsk: :)
Droopy door seals
Control arm bushings (in a week)
Water Pump, thermostat, belts (in 2 weeks)

I've been pretty blessed so far beyond some self inflicting wounds (due to modding and road gators)

And yes, I am on the original set of brake pads...55.5k and counting.:)

waterpump @ 50K
Alternator @ 140K
Thermostat, Coil, CrankSensor @ 140-160K

Also control arm bushings @110K


Original Belts(still looks new, no cracks), Idler pulley could use a DIY as it makes a slight noise)
