Hello

Found this site off Google. Had a 1981 320i 20 years ago, sold it, have regretted it since. Looking to buy my kid a car. Thought about a bimmer. Looking at a 1987 325 here locally. Been researching the e30's. This one is a 2.5L, 5 speed, 4 door, they say 114K miles (a little hard to believe on a 22 year old car) but it is reeeaaall clean. New radiator, water pump. Unknown last time of timing belt change. Any advice? Oh, they want $2300. No rust, No wrecks, clean interior, everything works, I think.

114K not to unbelieveable, I can pick up a 20 year old plus 7 series here in the UK with 70 to 90k on the clock with full BM history.
