I just had to take my car in for repairs, which could cost me $2,000. This is a 2000 Hyundai Tiburon that's on the beginning of crapping out on me. Most of the costs could fix the car but there's body issues and various other things that need work done like A/C, so it'd cost a bit more if I wanted it to be more new to me.
After I went to the second shop for an estimate, there was a 1998 BMW 540i that looked and ran great there on the lot for $4,000. Only thing is, it's got 200,000 miles on it.
I'm sure I can sell my Tiburon for $3,000+, and buying this car would leave me with more $ than I would have if I fixed the transmission on my old car. but I wonder how many of you would be willing to make the switch from a car you've had for nine years to a Black 200,000 mile, every window tinted in full, rimmed out 1998 BMW 540i. With A/C.
So, I think I may have a BMW tomorrow and may be joining your little club here unless you dudes can convince me otherwise. This is just like what have. Have had it for 8 years. The BMW (Like this, but the one I want is Black)
What would you guys do? Is there a better car to be had with my $4,000 plus what I can get out of my Tiburon if I get it fixed? Or would you go with the 540i?
