I have a 2004 BMW 545i with 112,000 miles on it and have had the following: New Water Pump( Graf..Kinda loud but ok for now), Thermostat at 108k. Mechatronic seal at 72k and 109k($900.00 BMW) Leak near alternator at 90k(warranty). New Plugs at 100k and new Coils at 108k( Bosch from Ebay 23.00 ea). Coolant expansion tank at 44k(warranty). Rear tires Michelin Pilot Sport(So Smooth!!) Tie Rods replaced at 106k. Battery replaced at 102k. Oil Level Sensor replaced at 109k due to faulty Overheating signals being sent to the DME($465.00 and 3 days of diagnosis from BMW). Front brakes and rotors and sensor 3 times and Rear brakes and rotors/sensor 2 times. The car runs perfectly!! Very smooth tranny shifts and lots of power. Recently purchased an OBD reader to do any future maint myself. The only issue I have is some creaking from the rear shelf area....otherwise, its a winner
