Alright, let me tell you about my little dilemma. I'm 17, still learning about BMW's, and seriously want to become a part of the group, not just because I like the looks of BMW's, because I want to eventually make a powerful machine, either a drifter or a show car that I can be proud of.
But everyone starts some where, right?
About 14 miles away, a military reserve man is selling a Black 1993 318i. The car is in absoloutly flawless condition, not a single dent, scratch, scuff, ding, crack. The interior is new, it's completely lined in WeatherTech mats, has a new $200 CD/MP3 deck, the sport suspension package, prewired cd-changer hookup, a full size rimmed spare (brand new), WeathTech window trim, and overall, is an insanely well kept car. The only owner is a 31 year old military man, who--since the cars first day off the lot-- has kept the car completely flawless, as well as documented and recorded every service and performace related detail in a 70 something page fully organized military style portfolio. He's been part of the BMWCCA, and has made the ultimate effort in having his car BMW maintained every 15,000 miles. Overall, a gorgeous car, right?
But sadly, every good deal has it's Achilles heel.
The car has about 192,000 miles on it, all highway miles as he had commuted often for his reserve time desk job. He wants $5,000.00 for it.
I'm basicly at crossroads here, I don't know what I want. I'd basically be buying this car because it's a bimmer, and i've wanted just the feel of one as long as i've been around cars (not to mention, the clutch on this car is stiff but smooth as a baby). And it's not like it's that slow either, he's done an excellent job of keeping it a small, zippy little car.
Here are the pictures and stats: 1993 318i
What should I do?
(BTW, yes, this is in the E46 forum as well, stupid mistake.
