Quite frankly, if I get burnt with an expensive repair outside of the 4yr/80K warranty I just won't ever buy a BMW product again.

I bought a few new GM products in my past and now I'll never (ever) buy their junk again. I've got a couple of kids and they won't ever buy GM either (well that is if they want me to help them out). Companies reap what they sow.
I feel the same. It should be the company's responsibility to make sure their products are durable. Losing customer and reputation should be the costly punishment if their product break easily. The whole extended warranty thing today they try to sell with everything is twisted thinking and is like a big scam. Customer should not be the one to worry and pay for the risk.

I have a toyota corolla with 230k miles/ 370k kilometers today. I drive it like a tank, barely stop at bumps, ran out of gas and stop on roadside more than 5 times, forgot about oil change dues all the time, wife had two collision on it, and it still drives well. The most pricy repair(besides collisions) was some smog converter pipe that cost $400 USD at about 210K.
