I am living in Germany now and am considering buying a BMW here since I hear they are nice cars :). Anyhow, I am too cheap to buy a new one so, I am wondering if I anyone has advice on the BMW 1 series cars in terms of engine life? Within my budget (, most cars have north of 60000 miles. Does anyone know off hand (or where I can find information) about expectancy of the N46B20 engine from BMW. I need the car to work for the next 2-3 years with minimal to no hassle over that time, and I plan to drive about 10000 miles per year.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
