BMW 330ci opportunity...
I've been "babysitting" a friend's 330ci (BLACK/CONVERTIBLE/47000 miles) for a bout a year now.
Situation is this:
He lives in Seattle and owns a condo in Atlanta (where I am). He frequently rents out the ATL condo, which has only one parking slot. So, he keeps the car at my place so that the renters can have the parking space.
I try to drive the car once a week or so -- when it is here -- to keep it in order.
Though I initially rejected the car because it was an automatic, the little bugger has grown on me. Brilliant engine, tremendous handling, etc.
He recently told me that -- as he is in town so little now -- that he might sell the car. He owes like 16,200 (USD) on it, and said I could just take over the payments.
The car is pretty much flawless, save the monstrous blind spot inherent to the extra-large C-pillar of the convertible top.
With a Corsa exhaust and a K&N intake, I'm thinking I might go from LIKING the car to LOVING it.
Should I do it? What's a fair price?
