I drove my 1997 318ti from 80k miles to 190k miles. Only things i had to shell out for was

2 water pumps
Various coolant pipes n hoses
Camshaft position sensor
Pcv + hoses
Rear shock mounts
Valve cover gasket leak - $45 only for gaskets which also i did

Icv clean, maf clean - for rough idle + spark plugs n coils

I would estimate maybe $2000 for all for the whole time i owned the car after my parents passed it to me... I even hit a deer which damaged right front side.. All that it required was headlight n turn signal n kept driving.. Boy do i miss that car. Should have just dropped a s52 engine in it n called it a day....

Mostly wear n tear but since i did em All didnt cost me that much
