Here is the deal... I never had a BMW before and I actualy didn't plan to
BUT I've seen one car that I've got some passion about...
It's a '94 325i sedan, 5-speed, 140Kmiles.
The car is a dealer trade-in and had one owner. I can't ask for the records. But it seems to be in pretty good shape.
I can buy it for... (hold your breath) $2200 + fees in San Jose, California.
(UNHOLD YOUR BREATH) And I will need to spend another $1500.
It needs new clutch, A/C service, one rim and two tires, may be an 02 sensor and some rotor resurfcaing. Paint is VERY good for a '94. It has gray leather which is almost fine except the drivers seat which is worn, but no big deal. No seat heaters, there's a Kenwood CD player, trip computer with all toys and everuthing seems to wrok fine.
So here is the question to all of you BMW people.
Does it worth from a price and value and reliability point of view?
How reliable are those engines+transmission with a mileage like that. The car drives very strong, but 140K sounds a little scarry to me.
Please advice ASAP coz I need to either take it or leave it.
HOW DO THOSE CARS HOLD UP!? ENGINES + TRANSMISSION
I do have a pretty new, but a bit boring Accord now... it's hard to bit on reliability!?
