Exactly, I have a personal friend who owned a fairly large car maintenance shop that specifically worked on European cars. He never owned a BMW, but he always goes on about how BMWs are completely unreliable and break all the time because he sees them a lot. I always have to remind him that people with perfectly working BMWs usually don't come to him to have stuff fixed, and that his shop is in an area with a massive amount of BMW owners.
