I heard that manual cars are a little more $$$ to maintain than automatic. I just got a 1995 318i automatic w/ 130,000 miles. The car had one owner (an old woman) and was kept in perfect physical interior/ exterior condition. When I took it to BMW for full servicing I got billed for about 3000$ worth of stuff (air mass meter480$, seat belt/air bag switch 300$, Break pads $500, estimate +maintanence fees $580, etc...).
I took my car to my friend too replce the armrrest and it took him almost all day and he kept saying BMWs are the most over engineered cars he's work with. That is why they are more money to maintain.
