My Ride: 2007 E61 LCI M47N2
Angry 2007 E61 Touring M47 163, a flipping unreliable money pit

Please help before I submit to my Missus request/demands that I get rid of this troublesome 150k mileage car.
More battery no start problems once again, new battery in August 2017, new IBS, antenna, new removable towbar used twice, spare set of wheels, panoramic sunroof repair, the list goes on!!!!!!! and on because I wanted one of these beauties, however I'm falling out of love with it.
In for the charging recall in November 2018 with no faults but now the gremlins are back. I feel like towing it to a quiet place and torching it but I am environmentally conscious. It has led me into a false sense of security, then once I pay out for more it screws me over.
I've never had problems like this with any BMW, or other car for that matter!
Please help before I put in a transfer request to Audi, Merc, Vauxhall, Ford, 2CV, even an old Trabant would be better.
My trustworthy Toyota Hilux Surf, which gets hammered off road, is laughing at me for buying a second car.
I forgot to mention the new rear air suspension, for heaven's sake will it never end?
So pleased I never went for the remap.
