new az guy
hey guys just wanted to say hey. Ive been reading through this site for the past few days to try and get some info on some stuff. I dont have a BMW right now but im thinking about getting one as my next car. Im a decent mechanic so ive always just bought something for a few hundred bucks like some beater truck and then i drive that till its just beyond repair usually at like 300,000 miles or so. Well i have a 92 k2500 suburban with a 454TBI which will fill me needs for a truck to go camp, and pull stuff, etc.. but i want to get a decent car. Ive noticed some of the bmws from early 2000 or so are pretty affordable. Ive seen some of the like 2001 or 2002 330i cars that i like the look of. Im going to be spending 10-15 but ive always worked on american cars chevy mainly, but some ford, and very little honda and lexus. Im wondering do these cars run for a while or are they mechanical nightmares after like 100,000. Any input would be great, thanks guys.
