It's a 2.7L. I work for an insurance company and when I type in the VIN it comes up as a 325e...but on the car it just says 325?? What is the difference. Also, do you know what the E/ES/I/IS stand for. I'm real curious.
The only major work I know that has been done to the car was the transmission was replaced about 2 years ago. I have the receipt. It was close to $2,000. The car shifts smoothly. The timing belt was changed at 140K per the sticker under the hood. The car never overheats, the engines runs smooth, and it's got lots of power.
This is the 3rd BMW I have owned. In high school I had a Henna Red 1984 318I. It had 178k on it. I hated the color of that car basically because it looked Orange. People loved to pick on it. LOL. My second one was a 1996 318I in dark blue. I traded it for an SUV to take fishing and up in the mountains, etc. I still have the SUV but bought the BMW to drive back and forth to work because it is a lot better on gas. (Also because I miss my 1996).
One thing I forgot to mention, the brake lining light never goes off in the car. Also, very sporadically, the check engine light will come on and then go off. I took it to an authorized BMW dealer, but they said there's not a problem. Do you think it could just be the battery in the dash?
