This is not the BMW that I used to know. In the past I've owned a 1988 E28 ///M5 and a 1995 E36 ///M3. In a relative way, they were both simple, reliable German tanks. My wife and I now own a 2007 E92(?) 328i Wagon, purchased new in late 2006. It's now 8 years old with around 60K miles on it. During the first 7 years of it's life with us, it has been virtually bulletrproof. Now, during the last 8 months (in no particular order): 1) Driver's side rear view mirror has stopped moving; no user serviceable parts inside; all I can do is replace it. 2) Bolt head holding engine mount bracket to the frame sheared off (how did THAT happen?!); had to replace all 4 bolts. 3) Adaptive headlight controller not working. 4 This one hurts the most: The ABS/DSC pump has stopped working. Thus, no ABS or stability control until the unit is replaced and reprogrammed. Except for the bolts, I have not gotten around to getting these issues taken care of. I will have to eventually, especially the ABS pump. Just the ABS pump alone is a $1250 part! What makes me so ANGRY is, NONE of these issues were caused by negligence on my part. There is no maintenance schedule for the rear view mirror! These things just rolled over and died. German engineering is alive and well but, it seems German quality control is absolutely atrocious. I strongly suspect things like the headlight controller and ABS pump were manufactured by outside suppliers. I also suspect these suppliers could have made these devices last a very long time (which they should!), but, BMW forced them to engineer OUT the reliability in order for BMW to save money on these parts. This is inexcusable. My wife and I can afford this car. We can afford two of these cars. We have better things to spend our money on than this German money pit. It's as if the electronics were preprogrammed to die at 60K miles. It's uncanny. I need to get this car repaired and out of my life before the next $2000 gizmo dies on me. I will miss BMW. They are fantastic driving machines. I've felt a lot of loyalty to the brand and to the BMWCCA. I'm a past raffle winner. It paid for our wedding. Good luck to all of you in the future.
