Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I would like to buy a 2012 BMW 650i but so many of my coworkers are telling me not to buy it because most of them have electrical problems.  Is that true?

The biggest problem is over-priced parts & service tech repair charges, poor reliability as no-one can keep them running unless you go to Germany for 5-6 years to learn. Notice I said tech not mechanic. Think backwards and upside down then turn over and cross your legs while doing a head stand then take drink of hard beer for a year and you will understand how they built them.

Thank you, I guess I will reconsider getting this car. Sounds like my dream car could be a nightmare.

Do you ask your lawn gardener about knee surgery? No. Go to a few BMW or European independents with good reviews and ask them about it. *DO NOT* go to the lowest common denominator shop that has the cheapest rates- premium quality techs and shops demand a premium rate, and you get what you pay for.
