I don't think I would buy another 135i, nor do I think I'll be getting rid of this one anytime soon. For me a car like this is a toy, consequently I'm putting the time and money in to it to make it the fastest and best handling car I've had to date. Given this, what would be the point of me starting all over again? As of now mine is paid for and I have no dealer warranty to worry about. I've done tons of homework on the mechanical workings of it and become fairly confident I can do most the wrenching (and coding) myself. Turbo reliability? Not worried about it, almost look forward to the day they start giving me problems and I'll trade them out for RBs. Injectors? I've already updated and coded the remaining recall ones to the latest...no big deal. HPFP? I have the latest but should I have an issue I think they're about $300....no biggie. Consequently I plan on hanging on to it for a while...however...if I got a chance to get a 1M....I'd talking the wife in to trading in her car....
