Mine has 304,000 miles on it and is going great. The only things I have done that involved substantial money include
Upgrade brake system to 740I - Costs 600 approx
New Power Steering Pump - Cost 130 for rebuilt
New Alternator - Costs 150 from dealer (Believe it or not)
New upper and lower control arms. Costs - Dont recall exactly but about 600 total.
New Tires - 300 for a set of new Yokohama's from Tire Rack.
New Rims - 600 from Tire Rack.

Thats it.
The car is totally tight. Does 100 MPH all the time.
milage varies. In town it is good for 20. On the freeway it is good for 27-30 depending on speed.
