Since you own the car. Also do you work on it and have the dealer take care of it. I am asking this because I am buying the e46. I know its expensive but I would like to know to what extent. I have no problem maintaining the car but sometimes things can go really bad that it might not even be worth it.

Thanks.

I purchased my 323i over a year ago with $80.00 oil changes and sensors going bad and going to the dealership it has cost me abou $2500 but you got to realize your driving "The ultimate driving machine". I think it's worth it.

new e46 is ZERO for 4 years, at least in the states. the dealer replaces even worn wiper blades for free (with clenched teeth, but they DO IT).

AZ325Ci is on a distinguished road
mines an '03 and all of my maintenance i've had done so far were covered under warranty. the only thing that i had to pay was a new tire when my tire blew out. tires and wheels are a couple of things that are not covered under warranty.

I see that most of you bought the car new from the dealer. Seems to me you guys dont have much problem (better not cuz its a new car). I am planning to buy used one so that became an issue since I dont get the benefits of free stuff ghead
