I just bought a 95 325i (my first beamer)

What's up everyone, I just bought my first beamer. A 1995 325i sedan with manual transmission, the car runs perfect and all electronics work. The car has 220,XXX miles on it. A lot of people told me not to get it, and a lot of people said the cars a good deal. I paid $2000 cash for it, what am I in for?

Read all the informative stickies at the top of the main E36 forum page. You'll get all the info there. You have lots of things you need to be aware of.

You should go back to the e36 forum section and read the sticky "buying an e36" It holds a lot of information that will be a great deal of help on where to begin. Good looking car man but i would get some oem headlights and upgrade the wheels. It will totally transform your car. Just keep coming here and talking to people and you will learn much, it's working for me.

Your in for a good time with your car and an agonizingly long climb through first and second gear..... =)

Welcome! Clean pics. With the fest check out the stickies man lots of newbe info there. We like to joke a lot here and have a no tolerance for liars. I cant spell and all the others are crazy..

For the car replace your entire cooling system if it hasn't been done recently. 25k miles ish cause if it hasn't, it's about to fall apart and kill your car. Then do a manual swap..

Also, "beamer" = BMW motorcycles.

"Bimmer" = BMW cars.

Just FYI...
