Hi Peter,

I have an 825i, got about 227,000 miles on it since new, 
mechanically it's been very good, the heater electrics (Japanese, 
be it noted) are dodgy and I've had to replace them with simpler, 
non-solid-state controls.

Although the mtce manual doesn't refer to it, it's a good plan to 
replace the timing belt after 100,000 miles or so (though I must 
confess that visually at least the one I took out at 120,000 looked 
perfectly good.)

I can tell you more off line if you're interested.
