May be true for the higher end Beemers (two wheelers) as well as their level of electronic complexity rivals the Bimmers.

So OP, if you are looking for a long term investment, buy the Corolla. But if you want a driver's car, then all maintenance and repair expenses (other than tires) will be covered by BMW for 4 years or 50k miles. After that, maintenance/repairs will probably average 50% or so higher than the afore mentioned Corolla - but it's worth it!

And by the way, the HPFP issues on the E90 335i have been covered by BMW with an extended warranty on that part.
