    Hi Guys,
    Im new here having drifted over from another (but not very active) BMW owners site!
    Ive just bought a '00 plate 728i SE and am having loads of issues with it, Im quite disappointed really as I was always told that BMWs were well made cars. Apart from various bits of trim that have fallen off I have a plethora of electrical gremlins thats are really spoiling the experience of this beautiful car!

    After having a similarly bad experience with a 1993 E34 525iSE in the past I beginning to wonder if they are all they are cracked up to be...

    What does everyone think?

    Could it just be that Im unlucky?

    Cheers
    Steve

    Hello and welcome beemerman76 to a more active site, apart from now as it's late

    BMW's like any car need some work along the way, everyone says that Hondas and Toyotas are reliable but that's because they don't come with anything on them
