Car's never left me stranded, even when a coil was bad and I drove ~750 miles on it (thread is here if you're curious: https://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1293099 ). I'd rate...

I'm not TOO concerned about the amount of owners, especially if the car was dealer and warranty maintained with all records.

I am more concerned about the physical condition. I'm agreeing with...

I agree with you 100%, every used car is going to need maintenance. The issue is the perception, like the OP had, that the "capital cost" of buying this used luxury vehicle was going to be the end of...

That's fair enough, so costs are also regionally-specific. I still stand by my original figure though - $3K to $4K gets eaten up pretty quick, even at cheaper rates (which I was basing that figure...

No problem, but as has already been mentioned, ANY used car at $5K is going to require money to be put into it. Perhaps not as much as a BMW, but it'll need maintenance and repairs, trust me.

It's a $60K+ car. You're valuing it at the depreciated used purchase cost. The actual cost of the car, when brand new, is $60K+. This means that ALL maintenance, parts, etc, are going to be valued...

I didn't do them, my indy did. It was a few hours, nothing crazy.

OE equipment but not "Genuine" branded. If I recall correctly, they came from FCP.

896923

Not sure why you're seeing $117.00.

It's the OE kit, not genuine, but the exact same part. Again, we're talking about a ~$50.00 difference between the kit and just the belt. IMO, people...

It's not about being rude. It's about preventative maintenance that saves a ton of headache.

From what I recall, the drive belt itself is ~$20.00 from FCP Euro, and the kit is ~$70.00.

Interesting. Even at the dealer, the OFHG and belt / tensioner / idler pulley are going to be ~$1K. It's really not THAT much, or at least not enough to make me dump a car :dunno:

So radar is illegal to jam in Canada as well. In every jurisdiction, as far as I'm aware. LiDAR, however, it perfectly legal to jam. Also, as far as I'm aware, in every jurisdiction.

That's kind of a bad experience for 335d owners..... I mean, just from this thread it seems rather obvious that the case materials aren't up to par for the required application.

I change mine every ~30K miles. It doesn't cost much and it's a good, basic preventative maintenance item. To each their own, I suppose.
