I am looking at a Black on black 325is its a 93 actualy you can see it here Anyway anything I should be worried about? I went and drove a 94 4door last night but I would rather get a 2 door and like black better, the only think I am even a little worried about is the miles. But from the little searching I have done I guess that isn't super high miles as long as its been taken care of.

does it have any readily apparent problems? Have it checked out, and if it come back with a clean bill of health, then it should last until 250-300k no problem.

Take a look at it personally and have it checked by a mechanic of your choosing.
My buddy bought a car over ebay and although he got limited warranty with it he had to put lots of money into it to make it run well. The seller's ebay ID was
techi14.
DO NOT BUY FROM HIM!!

Looks like a sweet ride though.

GL bidding.

Life Sux. Get a fucking helmet!
