Make friends with your local BMW service Dept and they will pull BMW shop service history for you .....


We have 92k on our 2014 328i with nary a prob!

You don't have the timing chain concern on a 2916

what could go wrong....no offense but with patience you could have found a 328i.
A few disclosures....

1. First BMW but I'm pretty good about diy maint and repair
2. See #1
3. Got it cheap as a result
4. Gaps in maint HISTORY... car seems well maintained. Carfax sucks

I don't mind the 320i. It's still got decent power and a bit better on gas.

Very nice and good luck with the car. Like every other vehicle some run great for 200K and some start with problems at 50K.

+1

What I see as well. You are good!

And yep, top down, AC on, hot day and it will get very close to that 250 on the gauge.

2012 but same N20 engine.

BMW picks up the tab for services up to 50k. After that many people get their routine maintenance elsewhere. That's why your new vehicle's carfax doesn't show dealer services after 50k.

Anyway, she looks to have been well maintained at least. Hope she'll be good to me.

Glad to be here so I can soak up some knowledge. I know my way around vehicles for the most part, but this is my first BMW and under this hood looks damn strange.
