Price is -----$5,995

have it checked out, then if its alright offer a lower price

Yeah, it's an auto. With such a car, manual is preferred. I'd keep lookin on the that alone IMO.

if it wasnt salvage id say go for it.

I paid more for my 94 325i with higher miles.

it also depends on where you live as to how much the car can/will get.

Yeah, salvage tends to scare me off. Just about as much as rental does =P

I would stay away from salvage title cars like the plague.

Check with your insurance company as well, some will not insure cars with salvage titles because of liability issues.

Also if you are thinking about financing this car, most banks will not finance cars with salvage titles either.

Keep looking...

In my experience forget the automatic unless you are seriously lazy. I had an auto 316i and it got the same MPG as my current manual 328i does (if you are willing to spend that much on fuel you may as well have the fun to go with it).

If that is the case an Auto 328i is going to cost you approx. 20% extra in the gas department long term over a manual. Seriously, think about it.
