I can see why people like these cars so much - they are really fun to drive, on the other hand there is the cost of ownership thing which is a concern for a lot of people when buying a used BMW.
So far its looking good - hopefully it stays that way.
Not really... Basically at some point everything i am going thru an e46 owner will go thru or replace the parts... Other can correct me if i am wrong.
None of my issues were ever a surprise to me. Sometimes the timing sucks and the only real "surprise" was Snowmageddon...
Do your research, ask around... Cost of maintenance is always cheaper than "break-fix".
