Ok well I'll get right to the point. My brother is looking for a new car and he's always been in love with the older 3series shape. Anyway we came upon a 91 325 ix with 70k original miles. Here are the specs: red with tan interior,all available options, sunroof, ski package, heated seats, air, premium radio,70K miles, and 5spd trans. It's also a 2d coupe. We took a look at it and test drove it and it seemed to be in good shape. Some other nice things about it is that it was garage kept(not a single spot of rust on the body) and it's the original owner who has all the service records(all done at the same bmw dealership). Oh and he also mentioned that he just had new struts, sway bars, rotors, and new tires put on(6k worth of stuff/work). The carfax checks out, even includes the buy back guarantee. Only reason he's hesitating is that the guy is asking 8500 obo. So what do you guys think? Supposedly the blue book value is around 6500, so if we calculate in all the work he just put in would you guys pay 8000/7500 for it(if he goes that low). Also what was the ski package? I assumed that it would have included a ski rack but the car didn't have one. Anyway sorry if this sounds too noobish but since my brother is trying to decide fast I thought that it might help if I get some knowledgable advice.
