Hello.....I'm new to the board.
I'm looking for a new business vehicle. I'm almost sold on an 05 Legacy GT Lmt Sedan.....but I can take over someone's lease on a 1999 540i with the M package. The car currently has 87,000km on it which will allow me to put on another 24,000km over the next 8 months. It also has an extended warrenty to 120,000km. I'm a little concerned about running into reliability issues and the expense associated with that. How reliable are these cars once they get up to and over 100,000km (60,000miles)? Is there something I can read which has some reliability stats?
The other issue is winter driving. The car comes with winter tires but it's not exactly an ideal daily driver for Canadian winters are they?
Any input is much appreciated....thanks.
