I think you asked about maintenance, not reliability. Oil changes are $100 once a year, brakes are $800-$1000 or so per axle. The BMW RF tires are $400 each or so.

I assume that you are no longer covered under the 4/50,000 warranty which would pay for it.

Depending on the BMW model, they changed the primer color to "match" the finish color in 2010-2011. I watched them do this at the factory. Unfortunately there are only three or four primer colors.

Don't know about putting 2014 into a 2012, but broken cup holders were covered under my E39 4/50,000 warranty. Those were really cheesy and I had two replaced.
