What's older? do you mean months older or years older???
I think its all about preference.....I would buy an older 325i, because I like the e36 body style & find it much easier to work on, for example than the e46! I do all the repairs on my e36.....& also fix my bro's e46, although the engine compartments look similar.....they are not....I do a lot of cussin, when I work on his car......
johnny,

Older with less miles...........

If you are talking about 2 different 2006 model year 325i, I would just stick with the one you have.

In general, when looking at BMWs, I don't put such a high premium on mileage. I passed on a car basically the same as the one I bought even though it had about 12k miles less because I saved $2000 (+tax) in the process.
