'88 E30 Pre Purchase question
Hi I will be looking at a '88 325i this weekend and have a couple concerns and questions you might be able to help me with.
The current owner (a BMW/ Mercedes mechanic) said he had to replace the camshaft about 6 to 8 years ago because his mother (former owner) would only cold start and take short trips. should I be concerned that this would/will cause further engine problems down the road?
It has only 71,000 miles, and he gave me a list of work he has done on it that I don't have in front of me. Outside of a rust spot in the right back wheel well and some dings it seams to be in pretty good shape. He wants $1,800 for it but I may be able to get him down to 1,500 b/c it only has snow tires.
Is there any other known issues I should be looking for or specifics that could help me out? Any advice and pointers would be really appreciated.
