I can't believe all the bad luck you have had, but I must say that your situation is very rare. I have both a '97 540iA and a '97 Z3 2.8 which I purchased new and, so far, have had none of the problems on your laundry list of complaints.

Sure, I've had the odd minor annoyances like noises in the seat, dash and headliner, but nothing mechanical in any way.

Like most of the participants in this forum, I'm picky as hell about my cars, so if there was anything wrong at all, I'd be one of the first to be complaining to my dealer. After 3 years of ownership, I still love driving my BMW's like the day they were new.

We're all sorry you have had such bad luck, but you can't write off all BMW's as lemons. Most of them are still the best cars you could ever own. Getting one that's a lemon is just as likely with Mercedes, Audi or Lexus.
