This is merely a personal opinion, but I'd change the belt and tensioner at that age / mileage. I recall reading somewhere that the belt is good to ~60K to ~80K km. You're at about ~48K km (when you...

If you're buying all 6 coils, buy the Delphi ones. Do NOT buy the Bosch ones. Bosch is what failed on me, and my BMW dealer (that I fully trust) told me that Bosch coils have a TSB on them for...

FWIW, I also recommend replacing with same brand. That being said, I have mismatched ones in my 328i, which the DEALER installed (and said it's very common to have mismatched). Again, personally, I'd...

Sometimes these things are just roll the dice. I had a Suzuki once with less than 50K miles where a hydraulic lifter failed (literally cracked right down the middle).

Honestly, I'm not trying to be a jerk, but I don't think this is the brand of vehicle for you. Like I said, you seem to just be looking around for "your next car" and randomly came across a BMW and...

Transmission fluid and filter is only good to ~100K miles ("lifetime", as BMW coins it). Doing it at 70K miles sounds like someone was doing some preventative maintenance.

White smoke, very often, is indeed coolant evaporating. If you're seeing white smoke bellow out from the engine bay, this can mean that coolant is leaking onto a very hot component, like the exhaust...

Are you buying a car simply based on being able to install an aftermarket audio system ?

THIS ^^^^. The word "effortless" is exactly how I feel about the 4 cylinder turbo N20 engine.

FWIW, my 328i says 24,000 km to next oil change, or 2 years, when the dealer resets it after an oil change.

I do it once a year. I probably drive about half the km between changes.

Yes, you should get a new car. Or, rather, I should say, you should ANOTHER car.

Can't have too many BMWs, after all.
