'02 325i Help.

Hello,

This forum seemed to be teeming with plenty of knowlegable folk from the BMW world.

I'm taking serious interest in purchasing an '02 325i listed locally. From what I have been able to tell thus far the vehicle is in fair condition for its' age, and well kept. I have several questions I was looking for help with.

The vehicle is listed for $9,500, and has 111,200 miles confirmed by odometer. Which leads to question #1 : Is this price reasonable for this vehicle?

Question #2 : I have been told many times that a BMW will last for MANY miles if maintained. Is this an accurate statement?

Question #3 : I am a rather well versed "shade tree" mechanic. I always take care of the regular maintenance on my vehicles myself. i.e. Oil Changes, Air Filter, Tire Rotation, Plugs/Wires, etc. Are these all things I can continue to do myself? Do I have to buy special tools just to do these things?

Are there any major known issues with this model/year that I need to be weary of ?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Answer #1 Seems decent as far as I know.

Answer #2 I have 191,000 on my e30, maintained regularly they will last FOREVER

Answer #3 All of those are easily done in your driveway, and so much more if you grab a Bentley Manual.

Good luck on the purchase, and post some photos for us!

R.I.P fast 6


Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.
