    I have e90 2006 100k miles the steering column replaced at 40k and came back at 97k. It's not affecting driving but gives you a warning about steering lock.
    My driver side door actuator went bad after a visit to BMW for oil change...

    Going to change spark plugs and into continental dws tires tomorrow.

    Looking to trade in my Audi and get back to a used 3 series but am concerned about the rft's and all the issues I am reading about. Making me think twice about getting a BMW. I don't want to have to change the tires every 12K miles or worry about it. Any suggestions?

    Summer tires typically lasting 20K-30K. 12K is nonsense (possibly related to defects in early rft's).
