The rear timing chain sounds like the pita.
Just put a $1000 water pump in my 135i convertible at 70,000 miles. My mechanic was mildly impressed it lasted so long.

Two months ago I put a $70 water pump in my 10 year old Nissan truck at 175,000 miles - my first repair outside of three batteries, oil, and brake pads.

My 135i is pushing $30,000 in repairs in the first $70,000 miles. Worst car I've ever owned by 10x, but thanks to Terry at least it's fun!
