buying a 2001 BMW 330ci convertible?
hi, i'm looking at at 2001 BMW 330CI Convertible going for $8K. is that worth it? the car has 120,000 miles on it, and while i haven't seen it yet, the owner claims it is in good condition.
more importantly, what would be the cost to own the car? i'm concerned about maintenance costs and repair costs - i'm a college student and the last thing i want is to have a financial burden and watch my friends travel while i work to upkeep the car.
how best can i upkeep the car without sending it to a BMW dealership? could i buy parts online and bring them to a non-specialized dealer?
