2 Answers a forum for 3-series BMW says theirs last upwards of 200,000 miles and applies to all bimmers. ..says the "life of the car" BUT a chronically overheating, or rich running engine, or cheap gas or a combination of these will drastically reduce it's life

The bavauto site explains a lot. "Fuel Trim is the Key" Quote. If your cat fails, it needs to be diagnosed why or it will not last, "replacing the cat treats the symptom not the cause"
