Which One?

If you guys remember I posted one of these a while back about a 525 vs. this same 530, and by the time we finally jumped on the car, the next day the idiot dealer sold it. :wailing: I could have killed him.

Anyways, so I am back at square one, again:
Here are my choices...
AZ Auto Sales - Phoenix, Arizona - Inventory Details
or
Fantasy Auto Sales Inc.

What I'm wondering is like what are the problems I am going to run into with both of these cars? When will the auto transmission go? When will the cooling system go?
If you could share some of your experiences with these cars with me that would be great!


Here are some stats...

2002 BMW 525i-$14,775
  • 1 Owner
  • 54,845 miles
  • Automatic Trans.
  • Xenon
  • Carfax is CLEAN
  • Sterling Silver
  • Grey Interior
  • NOT SURE - Premium Pkg.
  • NOT SURE - 6 CD




2002 BMW 530i-$14,450
  • 2 Owners
  • 68,000
  • Automatic Trans.
  • Xenon
  • Carfax is also CLEAN
  • Dark Blue (midnight?)
  • Sport Pkg.
  • Premium Pkg.
  • 6 CD
  • Cool Wheels
  • Grey Interior



Might go look at these over the weekend.

Thanks sooooo much.

.... you can get a Nice e38 740I or IL for 14k..... I think both of those e39's are very nice cars It really depends what your looksing for:
Daliy Driver or Weekend Car?
Long or Short Commute ?
How much Highway Driving and City?
What do you reasonally expect from the new(to you) car?
How much are you willing to spend?
What Options are MOST important to you In order.

let start with that and I can then help you further, and help you deside on the car tht suits you best But, remember your asking for an opinion not a definate awnser, Your asking just what we think would be best for you.

Thanks,
~Alpine
