Good to drive, but reliability concerns cloud the picture

I bought the car two months ago with 39k miles. Got a two year warranty from the BMW dealership. Just as well, issues so far.
Nox sensor replaced, oxygen sensor replaced, premature failure most likely caused by the previous owners driving habits, to many short journeys on a ligh throttle.
Front lower air control blinds, whole thing had to be replaced. Crankshaft pulley also replaced, the central rubber bushing was worn.
So not great for a car with such low mileage.
This is my fifth BMW over the last 30 years and I'll hold on to it while the warranty is valid, but if it's a constant stream of problems, I'll get rid of it, and won't buy another BMW again.
