1999 BMW 328i Problems
Valve cover gasket leaks are common after 60,000 miles. Symptoms will include oil drips under the vehicle and burning oil smell from the engine compartment.
The blower final stage fan resistor is known to fail. Symptoms are the heater fan speed varies regardless of the setting, the fan will not turn off when the car is switched off, or the fan will not switch on at all.
A fluid leak may develop from one or more power steering hose. When a leak is being repaired, it is not uncommon for multiple hoses to be replaced.

1999 BMW 328i Reviews
I purchased the car with 70K miles I have since driven 36K miles..keep in mind it is a 5 speed manual tranmission..excellent gas mileage, handles fantastic..have only changed oil..uses no oil between changes ,replaced rear tailight bulb , front headlight bulb( the dash indicates which light is out-very easy to change bulbs) I just replaced all 4 tires, and put in a new battery..everyone that ...
Drive line broke then lower control arms had to be replaced... Rear window motor went out & window slips down a little while driving. Reverse works when it wants, tranny a lil sluggish (rpm goes up high when auto shift). Definitely transmission issues (outsourced to gm) check the recall avoided by BMW!!! love the look of the car, not very comfortable though.
THE BEST DAMN CAR I HAVE EVER OWNED!!!!!!! EXTREMELY RELIABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am now climbing over 207,000 miles.
