Lots of small issues that are greatly overshadowed by the general excellence of this car
Original alternator died at 240000 km.
Fan blade broke off at 300000 km, resulting vibrations sheared water pump shaft.
Recurring power seat back "twist".
Relay controlling signal lights faulty at 250000 km.
Front bearings worn out at 250000 km.
OBC intermittent failure at 260000 km.
Exhaust (not muffler) rusted through at 240000 km.
Very minor rust at door bottoms at 280000 km.
Incredibly comfortable car. The seats are likely to be the most comfortable furniture I'll ever own.
Very beautiful car both inside and out. The peak of BMW styling in my opinion.
Great on gas, considering it's a very big car with a huge 6 cylinder engine.
Handling is exceptional for a car of this size.
Impeccable engineering. Very very easy to work on, the car was designed to be easily repaired.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
