Overall reliability

Expensive and flawed!

Travelled 70 miles to buy this model from a BMW dealership but didn't worry too much as I thought warranty support would be national! Because 120d's are relatively rare, no discount was forthcoming although the car was prepared well.
In the 18 months since purchase:
Replacement drivers window motor
Steering rack - well documented problem on these - loud knock on potholes and dropped kerbs
At this point the 1 year warranty ran out and I extended with a BMW Insured warranty for another 12 months £300
Brake control arm bush split - replaced under new warranty but £250 excess.

Without warranty these repairs would have cost £2.5-3 K, scary figures for a so-called premium car with only 45K miles
