Bad

Overall a very expensive vehicle, to purchase and to maintain. Poor fuel economy, always computer and tyre problems. Everything is so expensive to replace. Not worth the money just to sit and drive a "nice car"
Powerful car, great for towing, very good safety rating. Good paintwork never seems to scratch
Suspension so bad, so bumpy and noisy in the back seat, poor fuel economy in petrol model, tyres wear so fast and are bloody expensive, computer features are so confusing to use, car doors so heavy, not enough boot space, everything is so damn expensive to fix, service costs ridiculous

Excellent

A great car but for the electronic complexity and problems.
Comfortable, powerful, solid.
Spares and replacements expensive - tyres about $3,000 per set.
Good solid vehicle. Diesel drives & performs well
Too complicated electronically means too many computors to go wrong.
Mine turns its headlights off when stopped at lights or intersection - very disconcerting. Also uses power somewhere when in garage. Battery flat after 3-4 days.

We love the car, we had a Mercedes coupe before it and it drives just as well. We have found the BMW service to be excellent throughout Australia. It's powerful, comfortable and very easy to drive. Top of the line safety!
Great to drive, excellent tow vehicle, safety and comfort, economical (Diesel) but powerful
Bit on the expensive side

This vehicle is a successful cross between a luxury car, sports car and 4wd. It surpassed my expectations in terms of performance. However it is time to move on to a greener alternative. I have switched my energy over to jackgreen, now it is time they bring out a truly green car (electric? hydrogen?). I will be waiting.
Low cabin noise, excellent vision, spacious interior.
Running costs due to increased price of diesel

I'd start by inspecting the battery connections it sounds simple but being lose or poor connections can cause grief,check all connections around the engine for something not right and are the spark plugs overdue to be replaced? if so change them it could be that simple and a set is only around $90 (Bosch) unless anyone else has better ideas you'll need a computer diagnosis after that
