Hello guys (and girls),
I am relatively an amateur when it comes to BMW service (as I have never owned one, but am actually seriously considering buying a used 1997 BMW 328iS..... as my first car O_O)
Anyways, so my question is simply this: is it common for the weather strips (the rubber things that form an airtight seal on the exterior of the car between the window and the body) to crack and dry out? Because the only thing I didn't especially like about this BMW I'm thinking of buying... is the cracked and dried weatherstrips. The problem seems to be presenting itself on almost all the weatherstrips on the car, including the back passenger+driver's side window, AND the windshield! I am a bit worried about the windshield... because that can cause the glass to pop out if the seal breaks.
So, does anyone know how much it would cost (a ballpark figure) to repair? Is it remotely self-servicable? Any comments at all would be greatly appreciated!
