It depends on how much money you have- and how much you love the car- there are a lot of those cars around- they are not rare- it's been good to you until now- now it's being very, very, bad- BAD CAR- bear in mind that cars are not people- they are not as important and not as worthy of your love- having said that, spend a small fortune if you want to- I would buy another car worth putting money into

Yup, cars have a useful life like anything else. The average expected lifespan of a reasonably well maintained vehicle is 10 to 15 model years. At 12 years old your BMW has had a good long life. In people years it's 86 years old. Time to let it rest in peace. I'm sure there's another BMW out there waiting for your good home. HTH. -Jim
