    Hello, I'm new into the car world so I decided to buy an automatic 2000 BMW 528i with 200,000 miles as a cheap project to mess around with, I would later realize that wasn't a great idea. The car didn't run at first, all I had to do was put a new battery and that got it up and running, but not...

    My mechanic failed me for inspection in Maine, the reason being the terrible condition of the rocker panels. Looking for advice: the old girl is 20 years old. Is it worth my time and money to attempt this fix with some help, or should I bite the bullet and start shopping for a newer girl? I know...
