Like hearing your updates kevman2, I'm in the same boat with an 80 mile round trip daily. 2.5 years and the X1 is paid off, I won't mind driving it as much for work as well as pleasure/road trips.

My e90 328i has 146k now, I did a lot of maintenance to make sure it lasts to at least 225k. It needs the VCG, still sitting in my garage until I get a free weekend day to do it. I drive it hard and RWD sometimes feels faster than AWD, though I know it isn't.

My X1 35i is sitting at 67k now, and it gets 6k oil changes and will get a diff/transmission fluid change around 80. Plugs changed so far, but that is it other than the bolt on mods to make it rocket fast.

Agree with Yukoner, these are all still luxury cars. I do all the work I can myself or I'd never own one even making decent money. People like to complain about a 'cheap car' that was and may never be cheap.

Side note, anyone else use the maintenance log to see exactly what they've spent on their car/home/etc? I started and it's interesting to see. Purchase price and monthly payments not included of course, but my 09 was bought cash for $8400 at 116k miles June of 18.

Maintenance costs to date *including* all mods
2014 X1 - 941.19 (occ, dp, used old charge pipe from my wrecked 2015)

2009 328i - 3377.70 (inflated because I bent 2 rims on a berm... bought used coupe rims... 2 tires and 2 rims were effed so I had to replace tires, true/weld rims + purchase 1 new rim...) Does not include roughly $150 to replace every. dang. bulb. in the car on purchase.

Wooooooooooo, I used to have an RX8. Hated the exterior colour, but honestly really liked the car and how it drove. Definitely not cheap on the maintenance tho (especially those damn ignition coils). Pic attached below.

That's the problem. People equate the value of the car with what THEY paid, used. An E90 is, depending on features and trim and model and all that, ~$60K brand new. THAT is the value of the vehicle, and it is the basis for what all replacement parts cost. A $900.00 water pump ? Yeah. A replacement crate engine for $35K ? Yeah. Again, basing all of that against the ORIGINAL cost of the car. The issue is that people don't do that, they only value against what they paid used, which is usually a significant depreciated value. It's really hard to explain to people, TBH

Yeah, RX8 and X1 s28i are both low mileage cars, and great shape.

It's kinda interesting that I paid approx $33k ttl for the 07 RX8, and by the tine I put BHR ign coils and fuel pump, and Bilstein B12 kit the price became what I paid for 14 X1 s28i.......$35k.

X1 s28i only needed some front 12mm spacers to make the handling work for me.

Here's a funny for ya!

"Sometimes I feel like some torque, sometimes I don't."

"X1 has torque......RX8 DON'T!"
