Good to know this. Im one of those people who were made aware of the window regulator problems on e46s so I'm continually anticipating the window regs on my coupe to go anytime but so far nothing. Switch problem seems less painful.
The subframe issue, non existent on my car
Imo the waterpump failure on high mileage car is a sure thing like taxes. My mech replaced the pump, thermostat, belts, pulleys but not the expansion tank. Not needed so he said. My car has 200K and the tank hasnt exploded.
