    is it true about BMW's?

    i'm gonna buy one someday but my stepfather told me that they need maintenance all the time...

    IS THAT TRUE?!?!?!


    for those of you who don't know what i'm talkin about... i'm talkin about cars!

    Stef, if one can afford a BMW s/he surely should be able to afford frequent maintenance.

    If I ever wanna drive & can afford one, I'll get meself a Series 7, so editman can live his Clive Owen fantasy...

    You might need more than maintance, as I've watched on a consumer complaints program, BMWs are liable to set on fire!

    NO, its not true, it even needs less maintenance than your average car, but all cars need maintenance, like oil change after a few thousand miles/kilmeter...

    BMWs are Luxury Cars, and their maintenance cost are a bit more than your normal Pinto or Ford Fiesta but i am willing to bet that a BMW can outlast these cars several years, and the resale value is always high

    just dont get any British Cars... coz they dont own anymore .....lol most are German owned.. muhahaha even the beloved MINI is made and owned by BMW



    maybe the best BMW model for u radstar

    VMW don't have a large maintance record. They are already expensive cars and won't be expensive to replace parts.

    But its true that European cars do have a higher expense in maintaince. One of the most being the SAAB... and it hurt my parents budget, keeping that car in shape.

    But BMW is my second fav type of car. Go test drive one.. its mega fun. Best is to ask ppl u know that own a BMW (recent models) for what u want.

    Actually no. SAAB is owned by General Motors.
    You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't be sure. But it doesn't matter - because we'll be together.

    So you'll probably be writing softwares and stuff as a job...?

    ... wearing sunglasses and skin-tight vinyl, kicking a** in bullet-time?
