Yeah. They have nearly designed these things to be unworkable when stuff breaks. You certainly can't work on it yourself, most independent mechanics can't either because the proprietary nature of things now. Which means your only option is to take it to the dealership.... which means that in many circumstances the cost of the repair is beyond a realistic option.

Ask yourself this.... why don't you see any older BMWs and Benz' on the road any more? It used to be that those things would last forever. hmmmmm
