525i BIG problems!
My son ran my 2003 525i without coolant. He then ran the car into the curb.
A "friend of a friend of a friend" who works part time as a mechanic for the local BMW dealership looked at the car.
- Blown cylinder head gasket -
- Possible warped cylinder head -
- Ruptured radiator overflow tank -
- Bent lower control arm -
- (Also, broken rear tail light assembly) -
He estimated the cost of private repair to be at least $3500 ... possibly much more.
He then offered to buy my car for $500.
Does this sound on target to you?
Would REALLY appreciate any thoughts / suggestions.
