Mein Auto: 2001 BMW 325i

I have at or around 160k miles on my 2001 325i. The transmission, according to the multiple mechanics I take it to for check ins, is extremely in good health. However, between the 100k and 150k period, the radiator had to be replaced, and the antifreeze chamber. There are a few more issues, but those were caused personally. As long as you are sure to change your oil filter, and 5 quarts of synthetic oil are put in, every 8k miles, and you always have water/antifreeze in surplus, you should be free of any problems.
