Mein Auto: 1996 M3
I just bought a 1996 M3. I bought it knowing that the alternator tensioner needed to be replaced (it makes a horrible whistling sound at idle that gets worse if i turn the lights on) and the power steering hoses are weepy. I got the car home and this morning there was two five inch diameter puddles of brownish liquid on the ground. There was nothing on the ground of the guy's garage I bought it from. I love the car, but am I going to have to spend thousands on maintenance right away? If anyone might know what my problem could be I would appreciate it. Thanks
