i have done some homework on the car. summury of what i have learned is "its the greatest car u will ever own but if its not maintained it will be a money pit"
this will be my first car if i deside to get it....
Well consider this, a tune-up mainly consist of spark plug and wires.
The spark plugs are 11 dollars each at a dealership so thats 132 dollars, plus the wires which is about 500 dollars. Thats 632 dollars for a "tune up" The upkeep of this car espicaly at those miles will be over 7,500 a year. (guessing)
If your looking for a cheap bimmer you would be better off looking at an older 3 series. I would not recomend this as a first car, I personaly would of killed myself at 16 if I had a car with close to 300 horses.
