One of the reasons I got rid of my '03 E46 was because I was sick of the unexpected $1K to $2K service visits (independent BMW shop too). After 3 of these in one year (to the tune of $6K), I decided I'd rather have a car payment and a low mileage, under warranty car.
Yeah that's why it's sort of a gamble. I've already had a ton of issues with my 08 128i and warranty is up soon, so I'm definitely getting out of the car no matter what.
