But, the scale tipped towards reliability after reading many posts on this board about multiple issues. Thank you, all, for your input.
Mechanically, my car has been fine, fiddly electronic things have been creeping up. The dealers have been top notch in terms of their execution. Not sure if waiting for 2012 models fixes these things, as you see these reported on all BMW's. In terms of quantifying their existence, it's darn near impossible. I guess the old saying is true...Love hurts.
