My BMW's have been some of my most reliable cars. I guess if you buy the cheapest one you find, you are bound to have some issues later on. The other thing is too many people don't want to maintain their cars. Euro cars are not as forgiving as Japanese cars are when it comes to neglect.
I hate to say it, but the list is pretty dead on...even missing a few things! Many of them are bad design, and maintaining it has nothing to do with it! (how do you take care of your cluster pixels so they dont burn out? or keep your 528i springs from snapping!?) The E34 was FAR more reliable, and the E32 is just a tank in comparison...Too bad they are all so outdated.
