I am about to buy my first used car ever, and the lucky car is a 328i 5-speed sedan (96-98).
Being my first used car and my first car that I'm buying myself, I have some general questions. The owner's i'm talking to all own sub-100k cars and all claim "excellent condition, excellent this, excellent that" and of course I am going to have it checked out by a mechanic first before I buy it - but what are some other questions I should ask?
Specific e36 or general "used car" questions. Has X been replaced ever? Has X ever caused problems? Are you the first owner? What kind of driving? etc. I want as comprehensive a list as possible because I will need to make quite a journey to visit these cars and don't want to waste my time because I need a car in the next 4 weeks.
