question newby here
I have had lots of old cars and now i have 65 corvair and 91 geo metro both verts and all older cars where verts. my question.
I'm looking at a 96 328i e36 vert this is what the guy says so far.
Blown head gasket- Boston Green, Automatic, 6 cylinder, 146,000 miles, Wood Grain Trim, New Top, motors and tension cables, Ice Cold Air, Michelin Primacy MXV4 Tires, New water pump, Rear shocks, Front Struts, Control arms and bushings. No Rust. Good winter project.
he wants $1800.00 for the car. he said never smoked in no rust under the car and everything works but the head gasket.
I can replace the gasket in a day or so standing on one ear but there are some things I would like to know about these cars before I start standing on one ear?
transmissions. just how good are the 328i e36 automatic transmissions. I had a 95 lebaron once and those cars where known for the tranys failing at 120k like clockwork.
my guess is this car has a 6 cylinder inline engine. how are these cars for mileage as a rule? and are they prone to certain area of rust through so I know where to look at first when I inspect the car?
and I read that the plastic rear windows tend to fail is that normal or just how they are folded up. my corvair has had the same top on it for 25 years and the plastic window is still clear. but I keep it down all summer and only raise it during weekend outings at the casino for overnight and then only at night so the sun is not on it most of the day. thanks bob p.
