BMW X3 - Repair it or Sell It?

I have a 2013 BMW X3 nearing 100k miles. I'm on a bad streak of needing repairs. In the last few months, I've:
- replaced thermostat
- new valve cover
- oil reserve repairs

Now it looks like I need a water pump replacement. Unfortunately, the BMW shops near me are all fairly expensive, and each time something needs fixing its ~$1k. Given where I am at with the mileage, is it time for me to trade it in for a new CPO or should I keep investing in repairs in hopes that it makes it to 200k? I love the car, but the cost of constant repairs is adding up...

    When our 2011 X3 was over 90K miles (in 2017), I started having the same problem.

    We traded it on a 2017 CPO service loaner.

    Just be ready to find out how little your trade is worth.
