Fudman, Fortunateson, Fullthrittle -
Thanks for the replies. Yes a NE dyed in the wool enjoying LA.Different world but its pretty amazing - and finding a clean A car is possible.
All points taken - thank you. I think the good news about the 02' 525i Sport I'm looking is that it's is a family car. The husband said it was his car for 2 years and then his wife took over and he sent it in for all the required maintenance - now she wants a Lexus for a softer ride and more room for the expanding family.
I do like the the Steel Gay a lot. The blues out here in CA really catch my eye - just seems to go the lifestyle.
Funny thing when I looked at the car it had crumbs on the floor, and a few little toys in the door pockets - certainly wasn't detailed and it still looked very nice - rode great but I still want a mechanic to give at a look. Owner was agreeable.
If it all goes well friday I expect to pay cash and drive home.
I'll want to detail the car inside and out so any tips on cleaning the leather seats, engine compartment, and shinning up the car are welcome.
I've heard it not a great idea to clean the engine up too much....?
ENjoy the snow - I do miss it this time of year...
Best - Colin
