2006 E90 325 3.0 N52

181,XXX Miles

Water Pump/ T-stat -130K miles
First valve cover and oil filter gasket too

3 of the 4 window regulators

Drivers side Door Actuator

Oil Separator and hoses

Valve cover #2 and eccentric shaft sensor

Alternator - (preventative maintenance) got a a new Valeo OEM 180 AMP for $250!

trunk lock actuator

Changed all 6 ignition coils at 150K

Ive changed the oil every 10K miles, no noticeable oil consumption

Current issues - creeking door seals, and driver side power mirror acts up
"Drivers side Door Actuator" caught my attention...I believe there are MANY CONSUMER COMPLAINTS ON THE GOVERNMENT, DOT...NHTSA ( complaint database. This has to do with "locking mechanism?"

If so, please register this complaint with NHTSA's complaint there are MANY issues related to locking failures...people getting TRAPPED in their cars. I believe this is a RECALL issue and we need MORE OWNERS TO REGISTER COMPLAINTS IN ORDER FOR NHTSA TO TAKE ACTION.
