I would def buy another bimmer, but maybe not mine. (A red 94 325i with 98,500 mi on it) I bought it for $5500, but I didn't get it inspected and had to put about 3 grand into it. It needed a new AC compressor, new muffler, new brake rotors, 4 new tires and 2 straightened wheels. It also has some hail damage but I'm gonna leave that for a while.
Then again, I bought from a private seller and the car was otherwise in excellent shape. That's not easy to find around here.
BTW anyone have advice on paintless dent removal?
