Hey everyone, I'm a newbie to the BMW line and have a few questions regarding buying a used E36 series. I'm looking for a '93-'95 325is.

1. How many miles before you start to raise your eyebrows and worry about a worn engine?

2. Are there any questions to ask the seller that I wouldn't think of? In other words, questions that would pertain specifically to that model?

Well, thanks in advance for the help.
Marc

there is a FAQ on buying cars in the FAQ forum i believe , but ill take a stab at your questions


1- bmw engines are very tough , miles may not be the big issue however i would start looking else where if the miles are over 125,000-150000

2-check the FAQ forum for this and related topics to common e36 problems etc etc, you may find things you wanna ask him.
