My mom purchased a ceritfied used Z3 Roadster back in mid 2004. Since then, the car has only amassed a total of 15K miles, and has spent it's time in a covered garage. She took it in to get the oil changed a week ago, and was told that the power steering hose was leaking, and the belts were cracked/worn and needed to be changed. So we checked with the BMW dealership, and the book charged for replacing a power steering hose is 400 dollars. Thankfully she purchased the extended warranty, so it will only be a 50 dollar charge. But shes still looking at 219 for belts. I can't believe within only a year and a half, and 15K miles, repairs liket hat need to be made.
