Getting close to 50K (128i), recently replaced front brakes (covered by BMW maintenance) and the steering wheel trim piece since it was peeling next to the radio buttons.

Other than that, car is running perfectly (knock on wood).

MT 128i 'vert built 4/2/08 with almost 35k miles. No issues and overall 27.9 mpg.

Intake valves are doing very nicely, thank you - but I did have to clean my carpets and treat the top with RaggTopp.

March 2009 delivery but only about 21k miles.

Recalls:
- HPFP replaced under recall, no problem with original
- seat belt tensioner replaced
- tail lights replaced

Problems fixed:
- convertible top replaced twice due to 'tear' problem
- leather pulled out twice on front passenger shoulder
- loose piece of plastic (access panel?) left of and below steering column. Wires were hanging out.
- Three flats on my run-flats. Went through two full sets in 20k miles. I'm now on non-run-flats and carry a spare.

63k.
Had door locks fuse blow and was locked out of car for a few days. I probably will need to do the brakes in the next year.

Car seems to be running fine.

I did have the paint around the audio buttons on steering wheel peel but dealer fixed that.
Not to mention the rear center brake light broke randomly one day.
