  4. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    First off I'd like to say hello to everyone on the forum. I'm new here, and I am very interested in getting an e60 550i something around 06-08 probably, newer if I find a good deal. In any case I'm a college student, and I was wondering how reliable these cars are, especially once they start...

    I am purchasing a 2001 740il with 162k miles next Friday. I have already performed a PPI and the car is in very good condition. I have since looked further in maintenance cost compared to my 2002 540i. Some state costs are similar while others say 740il is the worst. This 740il had the...

    Hi I just bought a 2010 X5 xdrive 30i and I love the car but I have had to take it to the shop twice now for two $1,300 repairs. A new radiator and a new parking brake module.

    The end of this summer I need to have a car, and I was looking at a bunch of cars, I already ruled out trucks, jeeps, and pretty much everything but a BMW and a VW. I am not sure if I would be able to afford the BMW, but I am not sure what my budget is yet. I have several friends who are...
