I agree that the Germans engineer cars better. I just bought an X3 because it drives better than any SUV I've ever driven. I just don't think that as a BMW owner we should have to resign ourselves to crappy production that result in service issues. There's no excuse for building $50K+ luxury vehicles and implicitly telling your clients that you should expect to have service issues because we build better engineered vehicles than others.

Some of my friends have had no problems with thier Bimmers, but others have warned me to beware. I'm a bit worried.
