Sell or Fix
I have a 98 328is with 137000 miles, exterior in good shape, as is interior minus ripping on driver's seat. All electronics work and car has been garage kept and well taken care of. In the past 45 days though ive had a windshield crack ($300), the radiator expansion tank burst ($205), power steering go out ($800), and now after having the expansion tank "fixed" when i idled it it started to over heat (about 10 minutes).
had it towed to the dealership this time (had been a private mechanic), they drove it six miles and let it idle, then where the radiator neck meets the upper radiator house it burst. a new radiator is now needed ($1500), im negoitaging to get it done at a reduced cost or free since it happened on their watch.
ive got the service records. New tires, new front break, new windshield, oil changes in line with standards, new rear view mirror, new power steering, alignment and balancing done in past 4K miles, ect..
should i give up on this one and sell it as is? Should i fix and sell? or should i fix and hold onto it?
