Yea like all forums you just hear the problems. I had driven a 135i and it was a real hoot, but I just couldn't see the price difference considering how rarely I'd have the chance to take advantage of it since I don't track the car. But I wouldn't let the problems stop me. Most if not all of the fuel pumps have been changed under warranty and any other issues should also have been handled under warranty. With all used Bimmers my first check is how complete are the service records - that being said with the 135i my main concern in terms of keeping it past 100K would be replacing the turbos.
