    Thanks for the reply Cardoc, I was expecting you to say no track use and no short runs. but that's some really useful info.

    A very well cared for car. Good work.

    That's the same warm up routine as me and I use my car very similarly. Although my car has never had oil and filter changes in between main dealer recommendations and mine is still going strong on 93k. Definitely doesn't hurt though.

    The only problem I had was the battery, as you said. Mine started to show issues where the comfort entry wouldn't work so I knew it was on it's way out. But me having a very relaxed attitude about it, I ended up paying the price!
    I was in slow moving, heavy traffic on the south circular. Just got across one of the busiest junctions and the car died and was stuck in gear too :bh:
    It threw up a drivetrain malfunction warning so I was terrified to was a gearbox issue.

    Plenty of helpful people asked if I wanted a push but as it was in gear there was no way it was moving. And it took 4 hours for RAC to come and recover me. I head my head in my hands when lorries and buses were having to swing right around it to get past. It was terrifying!!

    If only I'd known at the time that it was the battery I would have just swallowed the extortionate RAC price for a new one but both me and the RAC guy agreed that due to the fault it flashed up, it was probably best not to try and jump start it in case there was a gearbox fault.

    You would not believe the relief when I got home, charged the battery right up and it fired straight up!!!

    96k miles on mine and it genuinely feels as tight and well put together as my 30k 335i I had a few years back - people are always amazed that it's done almost 100k miles. The E92 is so much better built than the E46 was - and I had 3 E46 cars some high mileage and older, some low mileage and younger.

    My nerve isn't holding out any longer and i'm going to get the rod bearings done in the next couple of months. I hate that I've given in to internet scaremongering, but to be honest, when I come to sell it in a few years it'll should hopefully be a big selling point as people are going to be very wary (rightly or wrongly) of a ~130k mile car which hasn't had it done. So hopefully i'll get (some of) the cost back when I sell it.
