Any BMW can go 200k miles. It's just a matter of having the will and the $$. It's a question of durability. For example early electronic water pumps on the N54 would routinely fail just north of 50k miles. That's unacceptable to a Lexus owner who has 150k miles on his/her original water pump.

Well if you had the N20-N26 or N47 diesel you might have a different opinion about BMW and timing chains.

Yup.

I drove mine on a 2600 mile road trip and hammered the crap out of it. I drove through the smoky mountains, the blue ridge parkway, down mountain dirt roads, did tail of the dragon, and it didn't miss a beat. All while carrying plenty of gear for two people.

Wait, so you didn't own a Ranger with the 4.0 SOHC V6 because basically two years of production might have had an issue with the timing chain which was solved after 2001? ??? My friend owned a 2001 which was one of the "problem" years and it went to 200k with zero issues before he sold it.

Toyota 2GR-FE had tensioner issues in first years too.

Sounds like the 5.7 HEMI water pumps. I’d still take replacing water pumps every 50k over a Lexus though.

As I've said many times before, if your idea of the pinnacle of automotive excellence is an anodyne travel pod that can go 300k miles with minimal maintenance, than a BMW is not for you. As for me, the enjoyment I've derived from the BMWs I've owned since 1983 vastly outweigh the additional expense of maintaining them.

Ah yes... long term reliability is at the top of my list in a custom built 1,000hp vehicle. smirk2

Or, maybe it takes 1,000hp with no major problems. You have no idea.

As much as I dislike driving BMWs after being a porter for them, I must say, the M235i is pretty fun to drive. I'm just glad it's my friend's car and not mine lol.

That's probably what they said of Audi's S4.

The difference between the two designs is staggering; the only thing they have in common is where the chain is physically located.

No, looks. It looks like a beast of a motor that will handle big power - as he said in the video.

"Clowns" Not the word I'd use to describe the builder in the video. It's a word that suits several of the posters here though.
