    My car

    Major problems with my 2006 diesel automatic - latest Turbo charger failure. Also had hydraulic unit replaced last year. Overall finish is poor. Very disappointed with the after sales and customer service - none. Expected much better reliability. You pay significantly more for a BMW - partly for the peace of mind that the car is well designed, built using the best components, built to last and with the best after sales service. This has not been my experience. Beautiful if you don't run into problems but if you do BMW does not want to know and you are in for an expensive time. I have a very different opinion now than I did when I bought the car. I had planned on buying another BMW when I was ready to change my car but will definitely not do so now and would not recommend this car if you expect a premium, reliable car for your money.
