What to expect with F01 / G11


I am thinking of buying a 2015 or 2016 750i and would like to know in general how reliable or unreliable these cars are. Basically looking for what I will get myself into with these two models.

My current e65 (2004 745i) got me pretty exhausted with the amount of work that I have done on it is still ongoing. There are stuff which I even gave up on that needed fixing e.g. iDrive.

If someone can tell me of their experience that would be great.

Thanks in advance.
