Die out?... What are you talking about?

If you are talking about the engine, I highly doubt that. BMWs are built to last.

Though, over time, you may have to start replacing a lot of parts.

I would pass.

"This M3 has the powerful bullet-proof 3.2L"

I don't get it...why does it matter that the engine's bullet-proof?

thats doable, it may need a lot of work shortly after tho, depending on how well he mantained it. but still a 97 w/180k for $12 that sounds a tad over value, id push to get it for about $10 and then get to work on it.

But yeah THOSE STRIPES WOULD HAVE TO GO.

Bulletproof meaning its very strong internally built.

play on words its not actually "BULLETPROOF"
