Sounds like grounds to start a class action lawsuit. Maybe BMW just built the cars, with maintenance in mind! Either way we are screwed.

OUCH! This will make you consider trading before you get too many miles on it. I'm currently at 68K, hope this repair is well down the road. So far, I've never owned a daily driver car that reached 100K miles and I've been fortunate and never spent any big money on repairs...sure hope that luck continues.
