Would the 128i 6 cylinder last someone maybe 8-10 years? I'm nice to my cars, I don't put more than 10k miles a year, and I do the oil changes and maintenance when required. I wouldn't track it or anything. Just wondering how reliable it is for those that have them, do you love the car? Would you ever get another one?
