There's no such thing as a 'cheap' BMW Alpina. You'll pay one way or another, but make no mistake. You WILL pay.

Hey Hoovie, can you help me out and buy me out of two hoopties? They are mostly taking up space at this point but I think they can give you good content. Obviously heading what they are you'd probably be like how, but it's 01 Rav4 awd and 99 v6 Accord coupe. Great price for the set!

Three BMW owner here - 740i Sport, 740iL, and 325ci convertible. They depreciate so well. (Depreciation is a gift from the Car Gods to us car guys.). Most repairs on them only need to be done once. I bought mine, all very nice, rust-free 2001s, with moderate mileage (80,000 average) and near the bottom of their depreciation curve. I have personally put about 100,000 miles on the trio in 6 going on 7 years. Buy them for 90-95% off of the original sticker price, fix them, love them. I feel like a know a secret way to buying really nice cars that few people seem to understand. Next on my list: a 750iL or maybe an X5.

Ugh. Easy $20 fix for those pumps. I'm doing valve stem seals on another V8 right now. Can be done in 2 days work. They lasted 160K miles. I have 2 of the previous generation 7 with the timing guides as well. They last to 200K with regular oil changes. It's just maintenance and Hoovie needs to learn to get his hands dirty if he wants a flagship.

mwyatt222 Prije 2 mjeseci
They make these basically unrepairable costwise b/c those that can afford new ones will simply buy another. The older models parts are priced such they make the cars not worth repairing and this keeps the new ones selling as well. l think Mercedes figured out they werent selling big numbers b/c people were keeping their cars for decades b/c of reliabilty in the 50s,60s and 70s and decided to make them in the disposable business model after that. I think only Henry Ford wanted to build a car that would last and be repairable. Shortly after the 'T' planned obsolescense was the standard.

My SAME experience was with a “Deal” 07 Audi 4.2 Quattro A6...what a driver, especially in the rain. Then Water pump fail requiring pulling the front clip...timing belt, 1/2 dozen coils spread over 2 years ...vacuum leaks, throttle / vacuum linkages, failed sensors that kept the check engine light coming back (-$7k over 3 yrs) culminating in a dramatic transmission failure.... off to the auction it went. I lost it all. $800 sale.No More used German luxury cars... You are correct, the Tesla Effect is not why these cars (BMW, Audi...) deprecate. They are poorly engineered for lifecycle value. Way too much complexity and sensors. The Audi/VW parts 3X more cost than Lexus equiv... - made for the 1% who lease and write off their cars as business capital equip. Eliminate that tax loophole, and watch the rich drive Toyotas

Hoovie you did not drive 400 miles with the bmw emergency mode active 😂 my bimmer used to do that when it had a bad misfire (humping down the road, no acceleration) and i couldnt even go a quarter mile like that! You got it towed tell the truth! Luckily for me, i could turn the car off and it would go back to normal.

Admittedly Hoovie owns a number of very attractive vehicles but almost universally are mechanical nightmares or dreams depending on if your the one who owns such or the one repairing them.

Delivered (50 states). But I understand. That's not fun youtubes. LOL.

Mercs are just as expensive if not more to keep fixing as u well know. i will not own another of either unless brand new & on lease so its not my problem when they do go wrong. i wont buy any german car built after 2006 after that they weren't built to do 300k plus now they are build to last the 2/3years of warranty and it shows we see thousands weekly on the back of recovery trucks. my firend 2019 bmw 330 has been for 6 major repairs with sensors included under warranty already, his brothers E class amg super saloon has been back to his dealer 4 times for sensors and 3 for major repairs. the main recovery companies in the UK the RAC and the AA say if u want trouble free motoring only buy toyota and nissan. thats it the rest all have lots of unreliable sensor and mechanical issues

Engines need gaskets? They commonly fail on BMWs. Engines need coolant expansion tanks and radiators? They commonly fail on BMWs. New direct injection fuel pumps? They commonly fail on BMWs. Air bag sensors? They commonly fail on BMWs. Maybe BMW should stop making vehicles and start selling horses.
