Overall reliability

Dreadful reliability, and only average in all other areas.

I still don't understand all the positivity surrounding BMW and it's cars. Having moved from a Peugeot which was full of clever features and utterly reliable,I now find myself in a so called premium vehicle which is constantly going wrong at great expense. Seemingly designed to only last the 3 years of its warranty before all the various sensors start failing. Sensors that can only be replaced by BMW specialists as they need to be coded to the car. MAF sensor (2 of), suspension sensors etc etc. All failing on a car that is only 4 years old. The warranty I have doesn't them either. Perfect. In addition, the car itself is distinctly average. Fuel consumption is poor compared to Audi, mercedes or any other similar size. Boot space is shallow for an estate and not completely flat. The idrive system is quite basic and poorly designed. Limited storage space in the cabin, with nowhere to our your key and an illogical electronic handbrake they needs to be manually applied when you park! What am I missing here? Why do people like them do much?
