Unhappy Declining BMW Quality

I have not read the CR issue though I have seen the comments Richard and others have posted here. My title is based solely on my experience with BMW's since my first in 1983, a 320i.

The last two, a 2004 325Ci and this 2012 X3 28i have been had issues I never experienced with any of the other BMW's I have owned. That list includes 3's 5's 7's and M cars. Things like the interior trim issues with the E46 coupes that BMW also denied was an issue on more than "a couple cars" but it was well known in the forums I participate in as well as BMW CCA members I know.

Regardless, the problems of quality that seem to be surfacing are issues that I have never even experienced with vehicles costing much less than my BMW's. I don't mind paying a premium price for a "Premium" vehicle. I do not appreciate paying that premium price and receiving a much less than premium vehicle.
