BMWs are more reliable than ever before. I mean if you want a reliable economy car with a very low parts count, runs on air, cheap to fix, get a Honda or Toyota. But as a result of higher part count (not cutting corners), new innovations, much better sportiness/handling, the complexity of the car rises exponentially and as an engineer can explain - there's a tradeoff with long-term reliability. I personally have not had any problems with my 328i and I think quality is in par with the 5-series model.
