What is the next big ticket item going to be?

Hi guys,
I have a cursed 2008 X5 3.0si, and I had to take it to the mechanic for:

- Water pump failure ($1700 repair, one month after warranty expired)
- Two leaking air struts ($700 each)
- Battery and alternator ($1400)
- Front left strut mount ($400)

The car is only 47000 miles and you have no idea how pissed I am with this piece of junk.
I wanted to trade in the car early next year but with all the money I put on it I consider keeping it longer.

So my question is: what should I expect as the next big ticket item to be, considering the mileage?
I guess another strut mount and then? Bearings? Rotors? Known common failures?
Thanks for your opinion.
