3.0d 138000 miles just getting ready to put its third ( yes third )gearbox and torque converter in. Then the usual- tyres- sway links- bushes - brakes-FSR-oil breather - oil and filter changes... the joys of owning a BMW....come back Audi all is forgiven.....:dunno:

101k miles

Recent work:
Water Pump
2 Pulleys and belt
Valve cover gasket
Both boots (preventative)

Work needed:
O2 Sensors
Rear upper control arm

Other than those things the car runs great. My 1999 e46 now has 215k.. shooting for 300k before I treat myself to a new 335xi as a graduation present. hope to be able to take this e53 past that.

worn thrust bushings

2003 4.4 w/107K miles.
Bought it new and had routine maintenance since. Replaced both front CVC axles twice, a few bulbs here and there, expansion tank, Recharfed AC, front brakes have been replaced twice, rear brakes once. At 100K replaced all four rotors. Also at 100K had water pump and all cooling hoses as a preventive maintenance. A few other little things like electrical relays and stuff.

2003 4.6is w/ 91K miles.
Replaced Torque Converter at 74K, both front CVC axles were replaced under warranty, expansion tank, regular maintenance stuff, and a couple of other minor things. Bought with about 60K miles. Just now considering replacing the CCV and oil separator due to some intermitent oil leak.

Cheers to WallyX5 with 300K and counting. That is what I am shooting for. Both are still a pleasure to drive.

I feel your pain, as the Werken makes pets that are damned expensive beasts to feed(improving) and care for, always will be. BMW diesel-equipped Torque-converter fails and eats transmissions? and NO relief from BMW after the fact? that is utter shyte and what steers the reasonable away from the brand..

but I highly recommend that you -do- jump back into an owdi, preferably one the age of your X, or older.

MAJOR Bias here, I discovered BMW at the ripe-old-age of 23, so I was spoiled in the glory-days of e9-e28, I am an UNreasonable fan, lol..
the Audi of the time was very respected in the press and in Europe (the 100? not certain, but the aero-look, 23-valve V-5 cylinder model) but I don't see any of them any more.. I drove a rental for a couple-hunnert km..

so I guess That is my definition of BMW.. the nth-nth detail that, when all maintenance is damned-near-religiously performed, makes a transportation appliance that exceeds its equation.. and keeps on being that car.. then came the //M's that narrowed variance even further..

I'd prefer a used //M to a new 525.. nothing inherently 'wrong' with the plain-jane fiver.. just not -there- yet. The //M is there in spades.. but jesus-gawd-it'll-cost-what? hella maintenance costs.

know I'll get (and probably deserve) flames, but in MY opinion: every audi I have layed hands upon feels like that plain 525 to me.. good enough (for the press salivations) but not quite.. the e-53 X isn't quite there yet, either, but it is still well worth the expense as it competes on a plain which I have had no experiences (gerlunder-wagon and BL-era Lucas-Rover set aside, heheh).. and it does have personality and a bit of the soul..

5K of my anticipated 130K mi total ownership, 122k, yesterday..
$3.2k so far.. mods, prior-owner-tabled maintenance and a RearWinReg to bring her back to near-correct + $700 for snows. Those, combined with the electronics that I have grinned and sneared at in the past, probably just saved my keister a couple of hours ago as the lion-share of the populace learns, yet again, that snow is slick.. and insist upon an anti-darwin-ian approach throughout re-education (aka take someone with them).

apologies.. I do go on, mining for chuckles..

Still a nudge uner 100k and since I rebuilt the transmission it runs smoother then ever. Just replaced oine of the rear airsprings which developed a half inch rip.

Next spring it will be time to do the chain guides and the valve cover gaskets. I plan to buy the tools and then sell them on here at a discount on here when I am done.
