    I'd be curious to know where they got the maintenance and repair costs -- those are insane and not even close to my experience with BMWs. The longest I owned a BMW was 8 years and it never took more than routine maintenance the whole time. Even if I had done it at the BMW dealer it wouldn't have cost more than $100-200 per year.

    They have $3300 for maintenance in year 4 and $3900 in year 5, and I don't even think there is enough shit on the car to maintain to get the cost that high!

    In the last year I had to get my injectors replaced on my 135 which was like 4k+, break pad sensors was about 200, water pump was a few hundred. You're lucky nothings broken down yet.

    You’ve never replaced tires on a 8 year old car? That is a lot more than $200. I had to replace a water pump on a 5 year old 335i and that was more than $1000 alone.

    There's no way tires amount to $3300 in year 4 and $3900 in year 5 per Edmunds. I have some crazy rare tires on my M40i (my mistake for going with 21" wheels) and even those aren't that nuts.

    When did I say tires were $3300 per year? The fact that you said your maintenance costs were no more than $200 per year on a 8 year old car shows that your claim is unrealistic.

    I never said you said tires were $3300 a year. I am saying that the Edmunds costs in year 4 and year 5 are clearly *not* tires, both because of the prices ($3300-3900) and because of it happening back to back two years in a row. It should be obvious from my previous posts.

    Edmunds is projecting some big expenses in year 4 and 5 that make no sense at all. Unfortunately they give no details.

    Oh, and as far as my maintenance costs, it was covered by BMW for the first 4 years. The last 4 were all basic/routine maintenance consisting of oil changes air filter, brake fluid, etc, which I did myself (no tire rotations due to directional tires, but they wore extremely well). Even if I paid BMW to do those services at their high labor rates, they would not have cost more than $200 a year.

    What dealer do you go to. I'm 200 for just a service check up. Not even changing anything yet.

    Both local BMW dealers here in SE Virginia are about the same price range for service. For reference, we typically pay $60-80 for an oil change and tire rotation on our Honda and GMC. BMW is more in the $120-150 range for the same thing.

    So how is oil change, air filter, and brake fluid less than $200 at a BMW dealer? Your prices make no sense.

    I just spelled it out up above. If you can't read or do math you'll just have to take my word for it. I am not even sure what you are arguing about anymore.
