I bought this car secondhand in 2007. The only major expense i have had, was the replacing the two bolt on front wings because of rust. The car is now at 89000 miles, i have it serviced and tested yearly by a BMW "specialist" non franchised garage. The cost of servicing and repairs has been acceptable. During my ownership the only non-service items have been a new battery, two front brake calipers and a new water pump. The fuel consumption is around 32 m.p.g. and considering the engine size and the performance available i have no complaints.
