Maybe just this month

1. 37,xxx
2. 2008 - 12/07 build (Purchased March or April 2008)
3. Stage II Software, Pulley, Intake, Full Akra, Springs, etc...
4. Nothing major, nothing relating to engine. Bunch of little things, the blower motor stopped working, noise from the wheels under hard cornering (was a factory issue), battery, trim piece replacement, etc..
5. I will keep this car forever.

I have owned a ton of BMW's and this one is for sure my favorite. Even more than the E60 M5.

Just bought an '08 with 50k miles and 2yrs of CPO. This thread makes me happy. I had a E46 until Dec, and it had a ton of problems between 90 and 100k miles. I may warranty mine for another 5 yrs out of E46 paranoia, but this is still a comforting thread.

I'm way over that in definitions.

To me:
-20k = new
20k = broken in
100k = mid mileage
150k = mid/high mileage (if garaged and well kept, it's mid. street parked and showing is high.)
200k+ = high mileage

You'll have to look through the world wide web to find it, but I read somewhere that some chaps in the US are on over 200,000 miles (not kms) so about 324,000kms - no issues!!!

I would love to tally up their fuel reciepts!!

another useless thread w/ people posting about no problems on cars w/ under 30k.. Of course! That's a new car. Shit people, either drive your cars more, or sell em cause you're scared/ this is a high mileage thread....... I won't even post as I have 39k

What bug crawled up your bum?..I have had a wheel bearing replaced at 6K so I wouldnt say ONLY people with high mileage may have problems..either way its a good thread to compare/contrast what issues people have regardless of mileage
