Question 98 328i worth $10K ??

I am in search of a good 328i 96-98 Model years.
I do have some around here but most of them are all automatic. I want to get a manual.

So I came acrosis this 328i with just 72k miles, wood trim, (regular, no sports pkg)manual looks good on pics. He seems to be firm on the price $10K. But I can't take quick look. it is 5 hours away


Before I drive that far I need to know what is best price for a 98 328i given these condition of the car?le
Is it a good idea to wait for a while, till I get good one near by...? I am looking for past four weeks now.

Other question is it risky to drive 8+ years old car for 300 miles ?
- any one bought their car out of state ? what are the procedures..? paying sales tax, title etc..?

I am looking for inputs..

10 K sounds like a reasonable price for that car. As far as driving it 300 miles... I would say no problem as long as there are no mechanical problems w/the car and tires are in good shape. I just drove my 98' on vacation 2000 miles round trip and it drove beautifully.

i drive my 97 328i 330 miles to and from minneapolis regularly. they are fantastic for trips that length. have the car checked out by a third party service tech and then go for it. the price is right as long as the car is in good condition.
as far as buying the car out of state you need to check only a few things. make sure you guys are squared away on how you're paying for it. check if his state requires a notary public for a vehicle title transfer. you pay your state's taxes when you register it. that's pretty much it!
my friend bought a 2000 M Coupe in orange county, CA. drove it 2000 miles back to milwaukee without a single problem. as long as you take extra precautions to make sure you are not being scammed, and you are WILLING TO WALK AWAY ONCE YOU GET THERE IF NECESSARY, do it!
