Should I buy it?

Hey everyone I recently found a 97 m3 coupe for sale for 7.5 k. It has 90000 miles on it and the guy says he's taken care of all the maintenance that's normally needed around that mileage, so atleast on paper, it sounds pretty good. Paint is an issue, which I can over look. The problem though is I recently moved so money is going to be really tight. The new house is a fixer upper as well so my pops it going to need to keep the van he has, meaning until the house is fixed which will take a while I won't be able to drive it. I'm afraid I won't find another deal like this anywhere else though. Should I buy it?

There will always b another car. You can probly even find one win better paint. Don't rush into buying a bmw. They cost $ just to maintain

With that price and maintenance done? I'm very weary of lost opportunities, they always seem to bite me in the ass.

I would not buy it if you feel tight financially. There will be added expenses very likely equal to the purchase price in the first two yrs/ 25K miles.
