Cal0205 is an unknown quantity at this point
Guess i was one of the ones that got effected so i had to register again and post this again:

One of my friend's best friend is selling his '92 BMW 325i with 116k Milage on it. I ran a carfax on it and its clean. He's the third Owner from what i can see from the car fax.

The only problem that i see with the car is that the muffler needs replacing because it makes farts like an old muscle car.

Inside and outside is in very good condidtion, the shocks, sparks and wheels has been changed. The car is lowered and comes with 17" M Countour Rims.

This guys very desperate in selling this car and i only need this to travel to school.

He wanted me to give him a reasonable offer. Planning to Offer him $4500.

BTW the car shakes at the stop light, he said it was the spark plugs but i think its the muffler which needs to be replace. How much will it cost to replace it?

Thanks

new exhuats can cost anywhere from 500-2000 dollars depending on what you get and how much you replace.

The shake could be a number of things, but it isnt good. Probably needs a new Idle controller.

Thanks RAMZ, There isnt any other mods. You think i should go for it? What kinda of fixing would i be expecting? is it worth it?

Its an AUTO car. He said it only needs a new Muffler cuz i checked out behind the car when its on, it makes fart noises like an old mustang car.

Anyone got a link for a good decent muffler that wont burn a hole in my wallet?

im going to get the aa tuning one that europersona is selling. normally that exhaust is 650 plus shipping so that is one HELL of a deal! also, you could probably work him down a bit by telling him that you will have to eventually replace the auto tranny and also change the muffler. then use the money you saved for the muffler. when u change the tranny in the future be sure to get a manual swap!
