How many miles on your E60?
Would love to hear about anyone who has record mileage on their car and yet it still keeps goin & goin!

How many miles on your ride and what kind of (if any) major problems have you had along the way?

I'm only at 49k, but hoping to get to 100k without any major problems. *crosses fingers*

The only major problem I've had is the radiator leaking but it was replaced under warranty thankfully.

I have an '08 with just shy of 40k miles. Currently the biggest problem has had to do with the audio going out. Took the dealership 2 visit and about a week to fix. Also, my anti-trap on my sunroof was acting funny, but that was fixed when I got an oil change. Other than those two items it has been going strong.

I've got 52k on my 07 525i... jus bout it a month ago...
No problems soo far as it just came off the warranty!

55K on my 2007 530XI, 3 1/2 years ago.

Many, many iDrive blanking problems but fixed (finally) with the umpteenth software upgrade.

Rear, side window blinds replaced twice due to leaking oil.

Recalls for rear shock absorbers and check engine light due to fuel-air mixture software bug.

DS mode went out but the extended warranty fixed it (would have been about $1200.00).

Endless trips to fix BMW-caused problems with low audio on the Aux jack.
The fuel-air recall software upgrade reduced the AUX input level by about 15dB (that is about 2 1/2 times lower) since iPod folks were overdriving this input.
Took about a year and a half for BMWNA to admit it.

Many trips to get Sirius radio reception fixed.
Replaced the control unit and antenna to no avail.
Turns out it is a known Sirius problem due to the lack of ground repeaters.
Even though my XM receiver I added (to the Aux input) received just fine when
the Sirius cuts out!

Would I buy another?

38k on 04 545I Sports pkg.
29K DME reprogrammed new Battery, right headlights replaced, 32K passenger airbag replaced, 34k new tires Goodyear F1 all season and align at 38k. due for a service check in 600mls.

skippy_ps 09-20-2009 07:03 PM

Let's see, 37k on mine. New ac compressor and condenser, driver seat rail, anti-trap not working on sun roof, battery and noisy idler pulley all replaced under warranty. Took two trips to the dealer nearly every time to get anything fixed and sometimes an argument. Out of warranty now but I'm done with taking it to the dealer for anything.

Just got 4 wheel alignment done by a top quality shop and found rr toe in was significantly off. Sun roof hits the flip up air dam now and won't close unless I hold it down with a pencil so I gotta figure out what's up with that. Blowing a little coolant out of the radiator cap so I've got a new cap ordered.

How did you find out it was leaking oil? TIA

38,000 miles on my '05 545i. Purchased a year ago with 31,000 miles. Only issue was corroded battery cable which killed the battery. Replaced under warranty. At this rate I'll hit 100K in late 2017.

It was dripping down the leather side panel on BOTH doors!
The first time they were replaced, they also had to replace the door panels -
which I heard was a pain because of all the labor to drill holes, etc.
The second replacements didn't have enough time to stain the door panels.

Stigmata 09-21-2009 07:06 PM

My 2005 545i with Sport Package has approx 69.5k miles. No major work done according to previous owner's maintenance records. 30k miles left on certified warranty. Thrust arm and front and rear stabilizer bushings are scheduled to be replaced under warranty. Keeping my fingers crossed for a reliable future.

Dowe 09-21-2009 07:34 PM

6600 and its on '08. i like to keep it clean ;)

jzcrna 09-22-2009 09:54 AM

18500 on my 09 535i. Purchased in December of 2008.

Have had problems with the bluetooth module. Sound fades in and out when calling someone. They changed the module, its still happening, but just a nuisance rather than a dysfunctional problem.

I have 47,000 on my 08 535i. Just purchased 2 weeks ago used (well used) but nice! So far I have replaced the Dunlaps with Michelin PS2's and also had the HPFP replaced.

Just purchased the extended warranty at the dealership, the warranty is actually through Universal Warranty Corporation.

Wow! I think you win the prize on most miles w/the car still running.
