It still runs incredibly strong and is still rock solid. not a cabin sqeak or a rattle. I bought the car as a certified pre-owend at 32,000 miles back in December of '10. Included in the deal was free maintenace and warranty up to 100k miles. I followed BMW's maintenance program and my dealer performed all work. 14-15k mile oil changes, brake fluid changed once, air filter change, in cabin filter change, scope and inspect car at every visit. 3 sets of rear tires and 2 sets of front. Replaced DLR with stock halogens. Both rear tail lights changed out. Just replaced spark plugs at 99,800 covered under maintenance plan.

Must be a miracle, lot of folks here including myself at least change control arms much earlier than 100K. Not to mention various leaks from transmission, dynamic drive, engine, cooling system - especially following "BMW's maintenance program". Not to mention your shocks at 100K are dead for sure.
