Ive had experience like that. I have 1999 E46 and it ran beautifully till now. at 142k it started just leaking everywhere and stuff started break. But for less then 16k miles it is wierd. To me anyway. Last time I had that happen was when I took to a shady mechanic. After he replaced head gasket all hell broke lose, alternator went out break sensors etc. In my case it was prolly the mechanic that did most of the damage. I would personally take the car to a shop where they specialize in BMW not the delears. And see what they say. I found out a bimmer shop privately can get better prices usually and work cheaper and deliver same quality.
Here is my story--
My husband took my car to get inspected and to have the oil changed on Monday , Oct.12 and we were told that my BMW needed new rear brake pads which cost us $622.22. He took it to get the brake pads today and when he received the car he was told that now my car had other problems.-power steering pressure hose is leaking $450.00 and crank case valve hoses-$725.00. we bought a BMW because we thought that it was a reliable car !!! My car only has 15,824 miles on it. It is a 2004 BMW 325xi . The warranty expired in March.
I spoke to a BMW rep today and she said that it not unusual to have these problems. Is that true ? This is my first BMW . I have had other cars but never had all these problems with under 16,000 miles on the car.
