Transfer case and cv joints X 8 oh and might as well do the timing belt as you never know when the last owner did it.

The chain in the transfer case is a weak point. Other than that the are nice cars. The oil pan can be a tricky item also due to the half shafts go thru it.

All wheels rolling is an unknown quantity at this point
I also have a 1989 325iX... it's great... I had some misfortune with mine but it's all up and running now. I'd say that the X isn't as good as the new X-systems in the new X-series SUV's but for it's day it was one of the better AWD systems. The car handles awesome because of it and the 'wider-then-most' cars in it's class it has stabilitry in the corners. I've been iching to take mine to the AutoX at the speedway but there's snow staring here so I think the racing season is drawing to a close.

I wouldn't trade mine for anything... well maybe for an M5!!

much lower numbers and most of them are dead due to the cost of repairs ETC...therefore they are worth a lot more i have checked out a few but i just dont know if i wanna lose that much power in the drivetrain...though it is nice i go up through the snow a lot in the winter...i would love to pick one up like this beautiful Alpine white iX but lets be real i could get a mint e30 M3 for $1200 more that price
