Here's 740Le xDrive 2018 with 124k km / 77k miles, of which I've driven 32k km / 20k miles since Jan 2022.

-One of the soft close door mechanism was fixed just before I bought her Jan 2022.

-Charging port "flap / hatch" was operating irrationally Jan 2022 -> Whole charging port assembly was replaced.

-BMW hybrids (i3, 3 series, 5 series, 7 series) well known issue, the KLE unit broke Oct 2022 with around ~120k km / 74k miles. "Unable to charge - Mains power too low".

Other than those, the car has been really reliable companion *knock on wood* For example, to my surprise the infamous front grille & front bumper shutters appears both working flawlessly even while they've been frozen stuck multiple times during our Finnish winter weather.

The battery pack appears to hold its range (around 30km / 18 miles) on average Finnish summer weather of 16-25 C / 63-77 F. Albeit this is the part most stressing me in hybrids, its very costly thing to replace.

2016 750i xDrive, bought it with 46,000, now at 176,000 four and a half years later.

Major Repairs:

- Rear air suspension replaced a year ago
- Creaking moon roof done twice in the past year and a half
- Leaking turbo coolant lines about 3 years ago
- Head unit replaced 6 months ago
- 6 or 7 "guibos" over the years
- Torn boot somewhere on the drivetrain about a year after I bought it
- 3 cracked rims over the years
- Leaking cooling lines and some connected tank about 8 months ago
- A ton of small things, fault codes, sensors, etc. mostly covered by warranty
- Lots of tires, brakes, rotors and filters not covered by warranty

All but the maintenance items (including mice), guibos and rims covered by wrap-around warranty (thank God). Two weeks out of warranty and now need to replace the front left airmatic strut and possibly the compressor (probably time to sell).

Definitely a rich man's car!

Any chance you have a link for the led projection lights ??
