I just bought a 98 328i about a month ago, with 50K, sport package, manual for 14,700. Very good cosmetic condition. My advice would be to get the car checked out (by a BMW shop) before you buy it. Last week I had to put $2300 in suspension repair, brake work, and new steering rack, alignment, etc . They also charged me 80 bucks for an oil change, and 80 bucks to rotate the tires (dealer did the work). Dealer = rip off, but I needed work done quickly and they're right where I work. I also replaced the brake light switch myself, thanks to advice from this forum.
Anyway, get it checked out by a competent BMW mechanic who knows the issues these cars come with. Historically they're very reliable.
I love this car! It's wicked pissah! :P
