Go ahead and keep your Z for fun and games...just know that bimmers are amazing driver's cars.
My bimmer is highly modified. The last thing that failed on me was the radiator, which does die in all 5 series cars about every 75K miles. Other than that, you have to worry about the alternator, thermostat, water pump, valley pan leaks, automatic tranny fluid changes, diff fluid changes...honestly it's a fairly normal list. You're likely to find more things going wrong on this forum simply because this is the kind of place we come when things go wrong.
I absolutely love my 5, don't get me wrong. But if you're used to the size of car of the 350Z and the 240sx, why not get yourself an E36 or E46 M3?
