CAR What happened to German quality and engineering?

I hear the new E60 BMW, C-Class Mercedes, E-Class Mercedes, Bangled 7-series, VWAG products etc. all have fucking issues. Electrical, mostly? And they're expensive to fix??

What happened to good, solid German engineering and quality? The E36 3ers are built like fucking tanks. The old 5 series too. I still see W124 and W125 E-classes rolling around....

Is the the Chevy-fication of Germany?? :eek3:

It's probably partly because they unnecessarily complicate things that should be left simple.

The electronic oil level sensor is one example

My 03 GTI hasn't had any issues :dunno:

But as to BMW - they've been increasing sales and production every year, so that may explain a drop in quality.

my dad had a 750 in like 91 or 92 and the v12 had so many issue he sold it a year later. He's driven amercan ever since. My mom got a 08 535xi and after 19k the fuel pump died three times and they lemonlawed it and she now has a even more equipped 09 535xi

Coolant level sensor on my E36 is acting up, I have a new one sitting on my desk, too lazy to swap it in :mamoru:
