2014 320xi now at 101k miles purchased new. Coil 3 died out during spark plug change. Everything running smoothly otherwise. They were out of stock on 3 more coils that I plan to replace in the upcoming weeks. This way I have a new set of 4.
I found that most failures are caused by the plug swaps

There was also a link somewhere in this forum where you can buy them MUCH cheaper than the BMW extortion prices...

$1400 to buy it

I did a bunch of stuff at once so hard to say how long it took. Did turbo, motor mounts, inlet elbow, springs, struts, and camber plates in a weekend.

If I had to guess, maybe 8-10 hours to do just the turbo R&R.

At ~$150/hr - that's $1500 in labor, give or take.... So maybe $3K total?

2015 335i Msport Bought 4/2018 CPO at 37,000, currently at 80,600 miles.

Regular brake fluid flushes, air filters, several sets of Michelin's, BMW alignments, tensioner, belt and idler at 50,000, transmission flushed at 60,000, plugs at 60,000.

Issues: Drivers side low tone horn failed twice.

Valve cover gasket leak 65,000 (diy'd)
Radio select buttons cracked, filled in with a Sharpie, seems to camouflage it.

2015 435i Gran Coupe XDrive
Picked the car up with 53,000on the odometer
I'm now at 67,000

Brake Pads - 63,000
Spark Plugs - 63,000
MAP sensor (intake manifold) - 64,000
Coolant Reservoir Hose - 65,000
Upstream O2 Sensor - 66,000

These are all things that had to be replaced because of normal wear and tear or they simply just stopped working.

2013 335i 90k
Purchased used in 2015 with 39k, then purchased BMW Gold warranty 5 years or 100k miles

Charge pipe - 45k, warranty
Spark Plugs - 65k, DIY
Battery 78k - DIY, plus dealer coding
AC Compressor - 80k, warranty
Rear brakes; rotors and pads - 82k, DIY
Charge pipe - 85k, warranty
Motor mounts are bad - haven't replaced yet, need to find an indy

Rear trunk tail light plastic lever broke, which made it a little loose. I was about to order a replacement when someone hit my bumper at low speed. I mentioned to the BMW body shop that my tail light was loose and they glued it in place saving me from ordering a new one.

Otherwise, just new summer tires yearly, and oil changes every 7500 miles. Currently deciding if I'm going to keep it past this May when my warranty expires. The car has been excellent but I'm thinking about an SUV and/or maybe something a little bigger as the getting in and out of the car gets old sometimes.

I HATE the new 3/4 series , so if I stay BMW it will be an X3 or 5 series.
