no it is not true... the only thing in my eyes that is different is if you go to the stealer and get stuff fixed. labor costs is what kills people, not bmw parts...

If you know a good independant repair shop, one that will not try to gank you for money because you drive a BMW, then owning a BMW is not that bad at all. Or you could do all the work yourself and buy the parts online from on e of the many reputable parts dealers and save even more money... and have a great excuse to buy lots of tools. Or replace your tools with metric ones.
