Well I guess you know My trannie went out in my 91 325ix. Not only our ix's hard to find but a 5 speed seems to be harder. Anyway a Transmission is gonna cost me about 950. I figure with labor it's gonna be $1300 to $1400 job. The car has no rust underneath. Looks really good all the way around with just a few marks here and thier. The only thing bad about the interior is a few rips in the front seats..everything else is clean. It's a good car over all. The money is no big deal to fix it..I'm just waundering if it's worth it to fix it up. Would you spend the cash?

Well if money is not an issue go ahead and fix it. Nice ix's are very hard to come by, plus after the repair it will be running smooth as ever.

its true my friends got one and hes got a few rust holes the size of his fist there in the fenders so it doesn't look that bad but i looked for an ix before i got my 318 the 318 was the first car i could find reasonably priced in good condition.

I wonder if He'll cut me a break on the labor if I get the timing belt done at the same time.

Thier is a dealer here in York that has a 4 door 91 ix about as perfect condition as you can get. Unfortunatly he wants 7 grand for the car which I think is crazy.

Why not go further and throw a bit of money at the car; I'll suspect you'll be happy. On the exterior, get the dents etc repaird, not all dents need an auto body, some can be repaired by companies like "Dent Star" or whatever is in your area. What I did to a 94 318i was have a couple of panels only painted, repaird and clear coated. The rest of the car exterior I had panels deep polished.

Then throw money at the interior and get the seats redone and maybe if it needs it, some paint on the inside to make it look new.

The total would be around $3000 or just under, but you would feel like you have a new car almost. If you have alloy wheels, throw a bit more money out and get them repaired and buffed and they will look brand new.
