I put about $500 into my wife's '89 325i convertable $80 for an "Aftermarket" alternater and $280 for a muffler (+$50 bucks to weld it on at a muffler shop) and $100 for 6 Autolite plugs, new 3/8" fuel line/filter, oil change and misc.
Scroll down and see a photo when it was on the blocks. It has 136k miles. Rob S. Photo's
I parked my F150 and now drive the BMW to work, 22 miles thru the Memphis TN freeway. I like the power -nearly 200 horses. It is a lot of fun to drive.
Can you tell approx what gas mileage I should get? I'm guessing 30-35mpg.
I plan to change the transmission fluid and flush the radiator soon. This car has been sitting for 2years and the very high humidity here caused some of the dash buttons to stick. I think it's worth about $2500-$3000. Comments welcome!
