Overall reliability

Unreliable!

Drives supremely well. Perfect balance of power/economy. 90mph/58mpg! especially on long runs, even loaded with 100 litres of red!
For 5 years all was well;then, ECU failed £800.After garage fitted new fuel pump £350. Failed injector crashed ECU again £900. car of road 12 weeks!
Struck on french motorway 7 hours (no breakdown cover), risk of divorce.
Paint coming off body ,warranty respray.
Paint coming off wings re-done by BMW twice. Coming off again. Wing liner at fault allowing moisture ingress causing paint bubbling. All 3 series tourings do it-have a look!
BMW customer services rude, disinterested, arrogant. Claimed it was the way I drive the car. BMW only interested in your money and have no concept of after sales.
Badge antagonises people and attracts envy?
Get a Honda !
