I am considering purchasing a 335i that has 30,000 miles on it. This would be a daily driver. My concern is about reliability issues and maintenance costs.

I currently have an Audi A3 that I purchased new 10 years ago so I am somewhat used to the idea that German cars can cost a bit more to maintain. How does BMW reliability and maintenance costs stack up to Audi?

Clean carfax, and 1 owner car.

Any opinions would be appreciated.


i have e92 335i 2008, recently i had a water leaking from the headgasket,a
week after replacing the headgasket, everything was fine until i opened the
oil filler to see theres water in it, now im thinking that the headgasket is not
installed properly or the head itself have crack or something, the garage
told me that the head was already checked and its in perfect condition and
the headgasket is new and cannot be misinstalled.
he is telling me that it could be the oil housing is leaking from inside , not
the oil filter housing gasket or the headgasket.
can anyone explain what could it be ?

Can I take the car in and get all of the recalls that have been stated for my car fixed? It has 104k miles on it.

i have a problem with my bmw

After a drive when I park the car, engine turned off and open the trunk I hear a fan / motor sound from behind the driver side brake light. What could this sound be?

I would like to give an update of my cracked tie rod. I was told this morning after a mind boggling evening.. "the car isn't made for sliding sideways."!!! I only slid back 5-6' before it stopped...lightly tapping the break to prevent in for hitting a tree on the side of the driveway.. This just doesn't make sense to me. So if I roll back on dry grown, in neutal and it slightly bears to the right my next tie rod will break. Do all BMW do this in snowy conditions. It's not like it moved itself from left to slid 5-6'approx. one foot to the side. I took photos to show the driveway, the slid mark and to where it landed. As I said before there was not obstruction other than gravel. I don't buy this service managers advise. when I called the salesman, he told me that was NOT what was told to him...I had a witness listening to service manager telling me this. The price will be over 800 because both rods need to be replaced and aligned. I'm going to trade it in for a different car but not with that dealership. It's a certified vehicle. 30k at purchase and 30140 since the 30th of Dec. Does this sound like a truthful statement?!

Car sat on snowcovered driveway for over 8 days. Due to the snow everytime I tried to move it I slid so I gave up until last night only to find out when I called roadside assistance that the tie rod was cracked. My driveway is gravel , no obstructions. Why could have happened I am under warrranty should this be covered?
