Question 1997 328i Convertible


I have a chance to trade my 2002 Toyota Prius with 184,000 miles for a 1997 BMW 328i Convertible with 74,000 miles.

My questions are;

1. The rear window in the convertible top has a slight cut in it, I was wondering if anyone has had this replaced, and if so how much did it cost?

2. The front seats are leather, and have cracked how much does it generally cost to have seats reupholstered?

3. Would anyone else make this trade I have spoken to several different people and no one can tell me if this is a great deal or not.

Owning a BMW has always been a dream of mine.

Thank you in advance,

I suppose it depends on how much you think yours is worth and and then how much the Bimmer is worth and how much work is needed on it.... I would definitely check things like Cam-belt, service history in general, the roof general condition (this can be expensive)...
