I am an 18 year old college student who just got the deal of the year on a 1995 318i 5spd. It has 144,000 miles, strong engine and good life left in the clutch. The car is mechanically very very solid, however, the clear coat is coming off and is going to need some things by summer at the latest. So far this is my third car, I started out with a 92 celica gt, and met an eldarado with it and lost the car. Then I was in a 1995 Lincoln contential until it started to cost way too much. However, I was able to trade it in and for the cost of fixing that car, I got the afore mentioned BMW.
So I have a few questions as long as I am posting. Is it a common problem for the buttons to the left of the clock, like the C/F button and the ones around there, to not work? I'm thinking it might be a fuse but havn't been able to check it out yet, because the clock still works and the buttons to set hours and mins still work. Another question is, does any one have or know where I could find a factory stereo with trunk cd changer controls are? My friend/mechanic has the trunk mounted cd changer, and my car has no cd player/radio/head unit. I'm hopeing that a used factory unit would be cheaper than installing my cd player from one of my previous cars.
