100,000 miles on my 328xi

I have just turned 100K on my 328xi.
Under warranty all 4 bearings. Front diff. And Steering bearings.
I love the car and want to keep it. To afford repairs after 100K makes me nervous. Should I be worried?
I would appreciate any feedback regarding this issue.
Thanks todd

Congratulations on reaching such a milestone. You must be doing something right. I'm not half way there.

Water pump is about all I can think of that may be on your horizon. g/l

My 06 325xi just reached 110K miles....still runs like new except yesterday the starter went out. I am going to replace it in the store parking lot where it died. I've tried everything to get it started and it has the code A0B4 for bad starter that won't clear. Wish it was a stick shift so I could bump start it!. It's a hell of job to get to the starter...the intake manifold needs to come off!

Check Valve Cover and Oil Filter Housing Gaskets for any slight leaks, those may be up/coming. They all leak at some point though, easy job if you can DIY. Both gaskets about 40-50 together.

I agree with checking out the Waterpump. Get codes read to see what else can be done. Check control arms and tie rod ends. Do a coolant flush/AC Service, change front/rear diff oils.

I'm at 145K and still going strong.

2006 325xi
118,000 miles

My water pump failed at 110,000
AAA provided the tow

I've had a few gaskets leak that are expensive to repair at the dealer
Driver side mirror stopped working
Broken drive belt tensioner @ 92,000 miles

All things considered the car is holding up well just ordered new summer tires

I have the identical car and model year year to the OP. N51 SULEV. I have 10K to go until i reach 100K. To the OP- Are you the original owner, and if not was the car always driven on VT roads? Do you have N52 or N51 engine?

I have had only 1 real malfunction which was repaired under the new vehicle 4/50,000 warranty. Maintenance is essential for longevity.

Pay now, or pay later. Either way you pay.

eccentric shaft sensor replaced under warranty (new valve cover gasket included w/repair)

optional maintenance:
transmission fluid change at 60K
Coolant flush every 2 years
brake fluid flush every 2 years
belt tensioner at 72K
front and rear diffs with transfer box fluid change at 75K
oh, and brakes at 80K

Oil filter housing gasket will get replaced at next oil change.

Once beyond the new vehicle warranty all work was performed at an Indy.

I have valve lifter ticking, but otherwise the engine and drivetrain is flawless.

I change mine annually. Transfer case and differential fluids will be changed this spring (I'm at 27K miles). I thought long and hard about the transmission fluid and will wait intil 50k to change it.

Mein Auto: 1997 528i
I was looking at a 2006 330i and did some research. I am seeing a lot of chatter on-line about broken bolts in the head, timing gear, and valve cover. I have heard that these problems were only with 2006 but then saw a 2008 328 that broke bolts in the timing gear. Anyone have any insights into this "issue"?
