    Does it live up to its "BMW - banyak masuk workshop" acronym? Haha sorry beemer owners. Just a popular joke... No offense. But yeah, does that model have a lot of problem?

    Good question. Earlier pre facelift E90 320i is selling for 70k to 90k. The price seems quite reasonable for a modern BMW. The question is, why is it selling cheap? High maintenance?

    Cheap car price doesn't make the maintenance cheap...but if you can afford to maintain brand new hondas, BMW doesnt seem much difference since Honda service also expensive...

    btw, welcome & enjoy your 'Sheer Driving Pleasure'

    that is normal for 2nd hand beemer especially the e90, when I 1st bought gotta change a lot of parts 1st bill costs me close to rm6k. 2 mths later 2nd bill rm2k. 1 month later aircond problem rm1k.

    but nothing beats the pleasure of owning a bmw :biggrin:

    Get a BMW diagnostic tools to access your ECU to read or delete any error code found on your car....DIY is much easier using this tools as it helps to pinpoint the error so that u no need to troubleshoot when repairing...there are cheap bluetooth diagnostic tools that can be plugged in ur OBD2 socket & monitor by ur hp/tablet/laptop in the market

    Yup, the Indian guy. Those days Road 2 there always parked full of beemers.
    Can check for you, need to ask my detaling and car wash friend. They have plenty of connections those days, he was the one say he shifted to industrial area, but did not get exact place...:driver:
