Too many problems. It’s been in the shop basically every week. Not a reliable car at all

I got a good value on my purchase. Nice and sophisticated car. I prefer the 328 and 335 models in these series. Specifically the N54 and N51 engines

Overall:

The car seems fine, and I’m sure it has all of the issues that it is notorious for - motor mounts, VANOS, rod bearings, etc. but I do not believe that this particular vehicle is any more of a headache than most cars on the road. I drove a Dodge, and a Chevy, before driving this car (not my first bimmer btw) and they are NOT problem-free vehicles either. Granted, I had a Challenger, and two Silverado’s). With proper maintenance and without driving this thing like a pissed off teenager (which is tough with a manual transmission) it should last a long, long time. That being said, this vehicle has several quirks. Firstly, the blower motor assembly will intermittently squeak, which sounds like crickets in your dash. This is an easy fix but annoying. Secondly, the auxiliary input is a 3.5mm stereo jack, meaning that it has two rings for connectivity and looks like a headphone Jack. So far, I cannot seem to put the audio into mono so there is garbled noise when playing back things like podcasts, YouTube videos, and more. Music is unaffected and sounds fine, however. I believe this is because the music is mixed in stereo. Thirdly, this car features arms for each seatbelt that elongate upon entering the vehicle. These arms almost hand you the seatbelt, and although it is a neat little piece of attempted gadgetry, it fails to grab the seat belt much of the time, looks and feels cheap, and is certainly something that will break and/or require maintenance at some point in the life of the vehicle. 4. Hydraulic lifter tick. Just Google this - it is something to be aware of when purchasing the vehicle. 5. There can be issues with the windshield washer reservoir and the line itself. Despite all of this malarkey, I still love the car. In my opinion that says it all.
