Which BMW 3 series has cheaper repair costs

Asked by Jul 20, 2014 at 11:22 AM about the 2012 BMW 3 Series 328i Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Are you doing the work yourself or a shop? Xdrive adds more parts and cost more to maintain. The E46 chassis or 1999-2006 is easier to work on and parts are readily available.
