3-Series (E46, E90)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1999 to Current. Models include: BMW 316i, BMW 318i, BMW 318Ci, BMW 320i, BMW 323i, BMW 325i, BMW 330i, BMW 328 Ci, BMW 328i, BMW 325i/xi, BMW 330Ci, BMW 320d, BMW 330d, BMW 335d.
I'm looking into buying a used '03 325i w/ 36k miles on it w/ auto transmission. No accidents, scheduled maintance, the car looks awesome! The previous owner really took care of it..aside from the cigarette smoke smell, and minor scrathes at the front from hitting the curb while parking (ouch), the car is perfect. It came w/ everything but the seat warmers (h-k sound system, moonroof, wood panels, navigation/computer, etc).
36k miles in 1 1/2 years is somewhat much..I'm worried about future costs for maintenance and its long-term reliability. What kind of long-term maintence is required for a 323i??
How much do you think the car is worth? The dealer quoted ~23k for a trade-in...Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
