!!! BMW Quality !!!
Really need your honest opinion here. I used to have a 1994 740i (bought it 1997), and it was great, must say its one of the best cars I ever driven (probably still is). However, it broken down, problem with transmission 2 years after i had it. Dealer quote to fix back then was 8k.. I traded in for a new car - Acura TL. I also heard a few stories about how BMW (German) cars doesn't last long, especially compared to Japanese counterparts. Requires a lot more $$ to fix problems and maintain. What are your thoughts??!?!?!??
I'm strongly considering getting the X5 diesel, but really have concerns about potential costs in the future, your input is greatly appreciated.
