After my last ordel with the auto dealer i have found another bmw. It is just like the one that the other dude that had to drive in the snow. It is same year and everything. Black 325is 1994 5sp manual with traction control. My dad has already looked at the out side but he has not got to start it. So far so good he says. If it runs good i am going to buy it. I was wondering is there anything that i should listen for when test driving it, or when it is running? Also if it has traction control is there a possiblity for a limited slip rear end?

Thanks for the help and replies agian.

Well i went ahead and bought it. God is it awsome. You know what, The exhaust does make a putt putt sound which could mean it has a whole in it?

if it actually makes put put noises then Id think you're engine was running a little off.

Haha im that other guy that just recently became a part of the BMW family. Congrats on the purchase, if you hear something that doesnt sounds right bring it to a mechanic and get a thorough inspection of the entire car. It would have been a good idea to have it inspected before you bought it but definitely get it checked out if the engine is studdering or "puttering".
