Mein Auto: 2002 Land Rover Discovery
Looking for advice.

Hiya folks. Looking for advice on buying my first BMW, I have owned many different cars but I've always wanted an older BMW, and recently my finances lined up and my Land Rover got enough miles on it that I've been given a green light by the wife. Been looking around, mostly in the 80's to mid 90's range, and I found this:

A little background on me, I'm 24, I work full time at an auto parts store (O'reilly) as a manager, I'm married with a 4 month old boy, and I only drive about 20 miles round trip to work every day (95% of that being highway/interstate with no traffic). Would a 6 series like this one be a good match for me, and would its value be hurt too much by being a daily driver? I don't mind getting my hands dirty, and I have pretty good access to parts because of my job, but I also have a very competent mechanic who is good with european cars (he has previously worked on my Land Rover, our VW Passat, and my Alfa Romeo 164) to back me up on things where I'm in over my head. I also have a garage where the car would be parked when not in use.

Thanks in advance for your advice!_a_
