Looking to get my first BMW (Advice Please)
Hello, I am currently trying to buy a e30 3-series, and I thought I would come here for some knowledgeable advice. I have it down to two local vehicles, and both are the same price.
One is a 1988 325 that is available from a towing yard, and is in running condition with unknown miles. This one could use some paint, and I am unsure of the interior condition.
The second one is about 70 miles away from me, and needs some work. This one is a 1990 325i, and the owner says the interior is in about 80% overall condition. The only downside to this one is that it overheats. The owner tried bypassing the thermostat, but the car still overheated. I was told by the seller that this will only need a head gasket repair, but I am somewhat skeptical, and I wanted to see what a knowledgeable BMW enthusiast would do, in the same situation.
