    Rust, dents, miles, extra metal.
    They seem like great vehicles to drive,but I've heard so many mixed messages on reliability and repairability that I shy away.

    I've done a mod or two
    This one has been owned and maintained by my buddy with the 2017 M3, when you compare the two.... yeah I wouldn't touch the M3 with a 10 foot pole. The M135i appealed to me because it is still pretty end user serviceable, minus the DCT. It may or may not be reliable, couldn't say. But the parts are there and they aren't an arm and a leg compared to a real M car.

    Fucking tell me about it ordered amotor mount from AutoZone 4 days ago said it would be here 3 days ago now they re ordered it

    Than with O'Reilly's I have 2 of their cheap grade cvs that I want to turn in for store credit toward the new "extended travel" cvs (just curious as to what they come up with)

    But no one has them and they need to email corporate or some shit for availability so I'm also going to wait a year for that

    Meh my dad's 09 528i isnt hard to work on

    Than again it isn't a performance package and has a naturally aspirated i6

    It was unreliable at first because the machanic we took to poked holes in seals, did half the job and stole parts to put on his identical car

    My only BMW experience was with my mom's i28 (I think that's what it was...), nothing fancy was just an expensive commuter as far as I could tell. She got rid of it a couple years ago for one of those fancy new Honda Accords, she had that BMW for several years but the last few it spent a lot of time getting worked on.

    She stopped letting me drive it several years ago when I was using the gear selector to shift manually and accidentally slammed the brake pedal in the middle of an intersection looking for a clutch, muscle memory.

    BMW have horrible repair-ability ratings and often need more major services than other luxury manufacturers. But that's not really news. The tough part is lots of the parts for them are OEM only, no third party options. I wouldn't ever bother with an NA Bimmer, breaks just as often and you don't get any speed payoff. They're certainly a lot tougher to work on though, and depending on what model it is, you could be entirely unable to maintain your own car if the initialization processes are locked to the OEM tool or if the part isn't sold to end users (some arent). The M135i is pretty much devoid of luxury features though, it's just a comfy car with a decent engine and turbo. Supposed to be their budget performance car, that's also why it's engine bottom end is hard capped at 600hp, a relatively low number for BMW inline sixxers.
