Actually I thinking to upgrade my self to continental. Which is BMW is my dream car anyway. Especially the BMW 320i i love it so much.
But i checked with my few friends but most of them said, BMW means banyak masuk workshop. even new car. How la..!!!I checked in yourtube all gave only good review. If there is anyone G20 owners out there, kindly request to drop your advice..

I dont have the G20, but I do own an F30. So far having run it for 5 years, nothing major has happened

Not sure about the B48 in G20, but in F30 occasionally there are owners complaining of coolant loss, mostly due to coolant tank cap, coolant hose or the water pump itself.

You have nothing to worry about anyway for the first 5 years as the service and repairs are covered under the 5 years warranty. It doesnt cover wear and tear items though like brake disc/pads, tires, wipers.

Just make sure you have a spare car in case you need to leave it at the workshop for whatever reason. They sold too many cars, but they dont have too much courtesy cars

The banyak masuk workshop joke is getting very stale.

Beware that people will say, you need to make more than RM30k a month to afford one.

Haha

Actually the 320i quite well spec if you don't need the additional 70hp.
330i will be quite harsh with its M sport suspension, not the M adaptive suspension that they use in the F30 330i

Owned bimmer for 7 years. Nothing much to complain. There are some models which require more attention and there are some that are simply more sensitive than others.

Overall, it’s a great experience. You want a secure piece of mind, go for T or H. However, the ride won’t be satisfying as continentals.

They use plastic for engine parts that were previously made of metal. Yes it would perform as needed when its new. But it degrades progressively compared to metal. Means if the car was designed to "expire" in 5 years, problems will come up one after another.

Most people say Banyak Masuk Workshop. Yes it will if the car is old. If you buy it new, i doubt you would face with unreliability issue as soon as it was sold.

The only law and advise i could give you is, if you are skeptical about continental cars, do not buy it. If you doubt your ability to maintain it, don't buy it.

Everytime i see threads like this, i see a dumb ass using people to stroke their decision that eventually leads to stupid arguments. πŸ™„πŸ™„

Only Toyota/Lexus (or maybe Perodua since it's using Toyota tech anyway)
Honda is not known to be as reliable.

I think what you meant is Handling not as satisfying. Yes, BMW is still the benchmark. Probably Mazda with GVC might come close.
Ride had improved a lot especially with Toyota/Lexus TNGA in the new Camry and ES250.

All in the name of European Emission Control, thus more plastics are used for weight saving because they try to include more stuff like safety and gadgets into the car, thus plastic is the obvious choice to include more stuff and keep the weight down. Also plastic is better for lower NVH.

It depends on luck when these components gonna fail.
Thus a proper maintenance routine and never try to be cheap are crucial to ensure your car last longer.. try to fix when you realize certain fault occur or weird noise before it becomes a bigger issue.

Check the engine bay once in a while for oil leak or water leak from the cooling system

6 years F30 328i owner. 1st time owned a BMW. Minor repair only sensor 2 times replaced. If you not a racing driver, no issue i think. If you drive like crazy, even lambo straightaway destroyed. The price is for performance and comfort. Not for continuous high speed driving

Does GVC even improve the handling in Mazdas? As far as I know it only improves the ride comfort and doesn't contribute to any improvement in handling. It's like ESC which doesn't improve handling.

Is the 320i already use adaptive suspension? Never really pay attention on it. I know the 330i misses the adaptive suspension, maybe wait later until it gets that.
