I'm guessing there are going to be a lot of pageviews from BMWphiles here, so I need to ask the following question:

I always hear how expensive it is to bring BMWs that are 5+ years old into the shop for maintenance. Why this is, I don't know, but I've seen some bills from my friend's 99 M3 and WOW, you all aren't kidding around.

But on to my question. Seeing all these awesome old beemers, at some point, they must go from being expensive-to-maintain, hi-po driving machines, to just being old cars, with the usual issues of old cars, but still, driveway wrenchable. When is that year, people, when is that year?

I can see my futures, and most of them include some type of old BMW wagon. Please help me identify the ideal year to target.

ok tenks!
