: the front suspension bushings, the radiator, the hydraulic brake booster, the brake bomb, the alternator, the a/c compressor or driveshaft bushings? Just curious, as all of these parts (other than the A/C compressor) and others have failed on my 100,000 mile, meticulously maintained 535i.
: : Overall this has been an incredible car. Car still runs great. 0 to 60 in 7 seconds, still! No major repairs ever. Trans., clutch, engine, all original and still fine. Had to replace water pumps, muffler, dist. rotors and caps, pwr. antenna, etc. Has small trans. oil and oil pan gasket leak, leather worn and pretty cracked, couple of small cracks in dash. Replaced metric wheels with M6 alloys. Silver grey paint in good cond. Chrome bumpers and trim pretty faded. Kept outside most of time. Otherwise fine.
: : Getting ready to replace her with a new M Roadster or 540i sport. Gonna miss her. May have to just keep her if it's the Roadster since she feels like part of the family.
