With almost 200k on an N54 Id be very interested in hearing what sort of maintenance issues youve had.

I would also be interested to see what issues you have run into. My vehicle has seen the hpfp, water pump, and OFHG replaced. Coming up on 170k miles and everything is still going strong from what I can tell. It would be great to know what might lie around the next corner...

What kind of timepoints did the HPFP / water pump / OFHG need to be done? Still on the original turbos and wastegates?

I had the HPFP, OFHG, and water pump replaced at around 165k. The fuel filter finally threw a code after causing some rough idle, limp mode issues I chased for a month. The OFHG was found to be leaking so I had the dealership do them both. The water pump failed two days after picking up the car. They were nice enough to cut the labor in half due to this for replacing the water pump.

Still on original turbos and wastegates but that is up for evaluation. I have been having a very slight smoke issue over the last month. I can't be sure if its white or blue smoke as its only apparent when I come to a stop during the first 20 minutes of a drive after the car has sat all night in the garage. It also doesn't smoke at every stop. So far, spirited driving between stops doesn't affect the presence of smoke. I believe the turbo seal might finally be failing though. More to come if the problem gets worse though.
