I am considering purchasing a 1997 M3. As I type it is at my mechanic's getting checked out but I wanted to check with the BMW experts here to see what you all think about a few things. It currently has 115,000 miles on it, excellent exterior and interior condition and drives solidly. So my questions are (and I realize I'm asking for opinions here):
- How long might I expect this engine to last? Is it just unreasonable to buy a vehicle with this many miles on it?
- What are the most likely high cost maintenece items I should expect with this many miles on the engine?
- What would you consider to be a reasonable price (assuming a good report from the mechanic)?
Thanks in advance for any opinions you feel like sharing.
