'02 325i Help.
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.
