Remember that an awful lot of BMW's are leased (including my 2), so a lot of original owners really don't worry about longevity. And while new BMW's include free scheduled maintenance, some of the intervals are a little scary. How about 15,000 miles between oil changes? Or even worse, "lifetime fill" on transmission fluids and diff fluids.

Sad to say I really don't GAS since I'll be out of the lease at the end of 3 years.

If I wanted to make a BMW last 200,000 miles, I prolly could - but I would be changing the oil every 5,000 miles, and changing the tranny and diff fluids at least every 30,000 miles. What do you think the odds are that the prior owner(s) of "your" 2001 did that?
