Long term reliability of the x5m?

My lease is up soon and I was considering buying it out and keeping the x5m as my winter/extra car. Any thoughts on the long term reliability of the motor and transmission? Is this a 100k+ mile kind of car?

Thanks for your thoughts guys!

Best,
_tom

Will the drivetrain last that long? Yes.

Will it be economically viable to keep it that long? Not in my opinion.

It depends on your luck. If you have a trouble free car and take good care of it, it should last past 100K.

Of course it will. Any car maintained properly will last forever.
