Value

3 out of 5

Some have been abused - hidden problems.

Costs

4 out of 5

Quite a thirsty motor. DIY cuts costs. Dealer parts for service not too expensive. Insurance group high.

Driving

4 out of 5

Quiet and comfortable.

Performance

3 out of 5

Kick down can be sluggish. When it gets going, it's fast.

Reliability

3 out of 5

Let me down once, in a big way (gearbox).

Not good.

Service

Don't even consider if major parts required. Try elsewhere.

Problems

Slight rust spots.

Engine
Head gasket. Coolant only getting by with rad weld.

It broke! BMW would only replace (£2800). Used a transmission specialist (£800).

Other
Coolant fan hub and thermostat (not BMW parts).
