LF/WTB well running 3 or 5 series for a DD
I'm in the So-Cal area and am fed up with the Craigslist guys that fail to mention CEL's, compression issues, transmissions that are "missing" gears...
Figure my best choice is to check a reputable BMW forum
Looking for something in the So-Cal area, max I want to spend is $5k, year/make/model doesn't matter too much; however I'm not too fond of the 7series and would prefer a coupe.
The car has to have a manual transmission, my truck is auto, sold the Stang and already have the itch
Don't care too much about cosmetics, more so reliability and preferably service records
Let me know what you have, will consider nearly anything, worst I could say is "no thank you"
