Yeah, E90 is now old enough to be affordable to most buyers. There are a lot of people who will get burned, and that is how BMW gets bad reputation.

Newbie looking at buying a car

Solenoid work on VVT-I on 2GR-FE engine can go between $2,000 on Camry to $4,500 on Sienna. Leaking sunroof? $5,800. So, one better take care of it.

Ditch RFT tiers, find space saver spare tire, put it in trunk.
Go with Continental DWS06 or Michelin Pilot A/S 3+. Both are top tier tires, had them both, my vote goes to Michelin Pilot A/S 3+.

That transmission price is in your neck of the woods. In lower 48 any indy will take $400-600 for labor. ZF pan/filter and 6 liters of ZF6 should not go over $300.

That GM inline six is ridiculously similar to M57.

OP has to take into consideration that he is getting advice from people who maintain cars so meticulously that they will easily make 500k. So, things get expensive.
