I have a 2011 35i and been driving it for 2 years now with 160K kms, ive replaced waterpump and rear air bags, otherwise she has been good. The rear bags are common thing to go so when looking for one watch out for if the rear is sagging. The inline 6 engines on these are the most reliable so your looking at the right one.

correct, driving along and engine overheating malfunction, pulled over and knew it was waterpump. My old 7 series it happened around the same kms mark, they go between 100K - 160K kms seems like.
