I have an 08 128 6MT sp pkg, just under 100K kms (not winter driven). Owned for 8 years now. My 1st "repair" was this year, valve cover gasket. Even still on original battery (thanks Battery Tender).
These cars go forever with only moderate maintenance. Issues are:
1. oil filter housing gasket (simple DIY; don't put it off)
2. valve cover gasket (replace as soon as any oil weeping/leaking)
3. water pump; these go at any time, usually between 100-140kms
4. spark plugs & coils; replace preventatively between 100-120kms
