Expensive to run and repair

Problems started as soon as I bought it with the rear suspension air compressor and relay failing (£1500 to repair at a BMW dealer) on the way home from the car dealer. Had to replace both rear wheels [£800 each] as the 20 inch alloy wheels seem prone to breaking. Not that comfortable with large 20 inch wheels, run flat tyres and M sport suspension. Panoramic sunroof broke - £4500 to repair. Very smooth and spacious but far too expensive to own and run.
In 37 years of driving this is the most disappointing car I have ever owned. I have never had a BMW before and will never have one again! [Previously owned a couple of E-class Mercs; so much more reliable and cheaper to fix if things do go wrong.]
