Dave Roberts here;Happy owner of a 2012 E82/135i, DCT equiped, with 8000 miles, residing and driving in Houston, TX. All attempts to contact Mike Miller at email@example.com for his lifetime maintenance schedule for BMW's have drawn a blank. All searches even on the bmwcca website turn up with no matches found. What am I doing wrong and or what is the secret key. All of this talk in Bimmer and Roundel magazinesof BMW's becoming a costly headache by the time they reach middle age (for cars) is or has become a concern. Having been a Nissan man in the past and present, I am used to cars that can be driven aggressively for up to 125000 miles with little more than the most routine care, and rewarded with the utmost reliability. I can now attest that nothing I have driven previously, matches the BMW for driving refinement (balance) and feel and responsivenss. The refinement for this model is surprising as well.I have been won over. However,my admiration for the marque has been tainted by all of the talk of highly probable and expensive trouble in the future. Hence my desire to obtain the maintenance schedule I've seen mentioned in the publications above.
