You can have issues even if you don't drive the car hard. I have friend who had a 545 and babied it like it was made of glass and it was going to break if you accelerated too hard and he had a cooling issues at 65k. It has more to do with the cost cutting and pressure from Governments to reduce automobile waste during its life time which has caused common issues to happen with these cars than abuse. I don't care how good a synthetic oil is, it has been shown that the extended to no maintenance intervals on these cars are the cause for major and very expensive problems.
