    Re: Living Beyond 100

    Does the number of years come into consideration?

    Eg a four year w low mileage (<50k) still needs to do all the above checks or it is purely base on mileage of the car?

    Anyone still driving an E46 318i? What's your mileage and the wear and tear?
    Cheers, Ray

    Re: Living Beyond 100

    From reading these posts it seems like the smaller cc engines tend to be more problematic. Do our forumers with the 2.5 and 3.0 or above models face similar issues? Do the issues mentioned thus far also affect the other German and or European models to some degree? Friend's Honda Odyssey did 180k in 3 years. No issues other than changing wiper blades and brake rotors and pads. Another with Subaru Legacy turbo 110ks totally problem free. How do we compare in this particular area of ownership costs?

    Re: Living Beyond 100

    My E90 coolant light came on a couple of days ago, and I did remember to topping off about 1-2 months ago. Topped it off but went to Sin Ming for a peace of mind check. i"m at 84k right now. Thankfully no oil leaks, that was fixed at 75k...

    In 2 hours i was about $1k poorer after replacing the radiator(cracked or leaking..), almost all the rubber hoses related to the cooling system. Fan switch....etc.

    I am now mentally prepared for the aircon to go next....

    Re: Living Beyond 100

    I'm looking at a 2009/2010 pre-owned 318 or 320 from PPSL...but am not sure if the future servicing of the car will costs me a bomb. Heard that there is a major parts replacement for a merc at 70k...is this similar to a BMW as well?

    Can help to advise pls?

    Thanks!
