I’m new to the forum as well as to BMW automobiles in general. I just purchased a 2013 BMW 320i Xdrive with just under 57,000 miles for my son as his first car. Looking at service records the timing chain, valve cover gasket, oil pan gasket, brakes, and rotors were replaced around 45,000 miles. Are there any common issues these cars tend to have that I need to be aware of? The only thing I’ve found is one of the reverse light housings is broken on the side next to the tail light. A common problem if you don’t remove the housing correctly from what I’ve read. Feel free to give me any advice or info I may need to know.

Morning Shawn

Welcome to the Forum

Lucky son 😁

Even Dealers technicians (they don't call them mechanics anymore so they can charge more 🤣) can be clumsy rock apes at times. 

With the Xdrive cars correct sized tyres are essential to protect the Xdrive transfer case, diffs etc

Hope your boy appreciates his car
