'05 Suburban, 125k, bulletproof, 02 BMW 540, 88k..
waiting to replace so much stuff (valley pan, VC gaskets, water pump,lots of hoses, control arm bushings) that I just look at the car sitting there because I don't want to do all that work and don't feel that $4,000 worth of repairs will make me feel any better.
The Susburban is still on it's original front brakes and the only thing done to it has been changing the oil and fluids, rear brakes and spark plugs/O2 sensors at 100k. I am still amazed at what a great vehicle this has been.
My BMW is beyond fun to drive when all is right, and it has been pretty bulletproof, but the miles are up there to the point that lots of the stuff that goes wrong (prematurely in my opinion) needs to be dealt with, along with normal stuff like spark plugs and O2 sensors. In addition, the Nav unit works only sometimes and is a turd. My Droid works better, but then it is 10 year newer technology.
Truth be told, I am love both these cars and dread the day I have to replace either. I don't loke the new Suburbans as much as this one, although they have some nice options that were not available on our '05 and I have never seen a nicer looking sedan than the BMW and it is a great driver besides.
