Okay I have never owned a BMW before, and ran across this deal at a local dealership. I have always loved the 325i's and am in love with this car. I just need to know if yall think its a good deal and what I need to ask them at the dealership about it. Here is some of the specs as it gives it on the website.

1993 BMW 325I, white, tan int., auto., all power options, high miles, sunroof, chrome wheels, $4950 cash, free warranty.

Here is a pic of the car provided by autotrader. Please let me know if this is a nice car, im a 23 year old college student and manager of a photo lab at six flags in need of some reliable transpertation and a car to mod with my bi-weekly pay check




There is also another one I found on auto trader but it is red. I really like the white or silver but red is just ok. Here is the specs on the red one.

1992 BMW 325I, 105,794 mi, air bag, abs, ac, ps, cc, lthr, p/windows, am/fm, stereo, pdl, sunroof, A great car with low mileage and a clean carfax reportThe paint is good and the tires have at least 75% tred left.A/C,heat,radio work greatOBO, $4,800

and here is the picture.





PLEASE HELP ME, as I have never owned a bmw! I am trying to buy one asap! Thank you in advance! Im new to this board and I really love reading about everyone's bmw, ya'll really have some nice rides! Hopefully I can join the family soon! talk to everyone soon!

Hey everyone I found a car that I really really like, its already fixed up pretty much what I would have done to any other 325i I got, here is the specs,

1993 BMW 325I, red, 58k mi., 2004 M3 front, purple projector headlamps w/angel eyes, new wheels and tires, fog lamps, clear tail lamps, heated pwr. seats, black leather, fresh tuneup, 1000's in up-grades, won't last long, just reduced to $7,000 firm.

here is a pic of it, I think Im really intrested in this one, what do yall fellow 325i drivers think about this??

e46 bumpers do not belong on e36's and those rims are trash, but that mileage is VERY low for a 93.

I would say try to keep the mileage under 140.. ive got 125 on mine and she pulls real hard.

even though I don't like e46 bumpers on e36s, on the red color it doesn't look half bad. The rims would have to do go but 7000 for that car doesn't sound too bad. Also you could just spend an extra 400 bucks and get an e36 m3 bumper on there :P

:P this is my first entry into this "club". My neighbor has promised to sell me his wife's car this autumn when they retire. Its a 1993 325is auto with, can you believe, 18,000 (not 180,000) original miles and garage kept. He definiely lives in the better part of town. I know he has whatever facory installed things it came with, as he is in his late 60's and very conservative, but what do you think would be a fair prive for this. Also, I have never had a Bimmer and hear they are terrible in Northeast winters! Any solutions? thank you

are any of the cars 5 speed? i think you would prefer it more, but autos arent bad either! you should get all the cars checked out by a respectable euro mechianic before buying any of them. i really like the white one, hopefully it doesnt have to high or miles.. .58 on that red one is crazy though!!! if its 5 speed you should get it.
