A BMW is one of the worst choices you can make for a commuter car as the maintenance and repairs costs are really high. The Lexus would be a better choice in my opinion.

This car was on the cover of consumer reports in 2012 for most reliable new car. Maintenance costs are a myth for BMW they're not bad at all. oil changes are about the extent of it every 12,000 miles
