I asked on here a couple months ago about BMW quality and got quite the array of answers and information. Since that time I have spoken to a local BMW mechanic with an excellent reputation and was happy to answer all my questions. One thing he pointed out was issues with the 4 cylinder motor and the 8 cylinder motor. Opt for the in-line 6. That I was already convinced of, so he confirmed what I knew. Said they are fairly reliable, no better, no worse than anyone else. We talked about servicing it regularly, which is never a problem for me. He said he starts seeing them as they get to 100K. I haven't driven 100K in total over everything I have driven in at least the last 8 years. So this car alone - long way down the road to hit that point. So I thought about 2 door versus 4 door - opted for 2 door, I have a 4 door truck and the wife has a 4 door SUV. So it brought me to this - 2021 BMW M440i xDrive. This one has a few extras including the wheels. The front end is new and there are people on each end of hate and love. I like it. This is it sitting on the dealer lot. Since it has been tinted and ceramic coated. Still trying to figure out how everything works. So far, I am enjoying it and don't miss the Mustang.
