Whats up everyone, I dont currently own a bimmer but I have the opportunity to purchase a 2000 328i with 144k for next to dirt cheap. I plan on using it as my winter car so I can rock the tahoe in the summer w out removing the wheels. Anyways, I wanted to lay it down for everyone and hopefully get some responses on wheather or not I should invest in this car.
Whats been replaced:
2 o2 sensors
rotors (replaced w drilled and slotted)
Rubber hose that connects intake manifold with air filter
small dime size rust under paint on rear passenger fender
small scratch in paint on front drivers fender
No rust to suspension
subframe not cracked, at least what I can see from inspection
front strut tower not mushroomed
two front seats pretty much destroyed
steering wheel cover in shambles
tint peeled off rear passsenger window
Car sat for too long and tires are new but look dry rotted
Wheels are 17" aftermarket chrome but were never removed resulting in bubbling of chrome
I am going to drive it today after work. Asking 3000, going to offer 2500. If he wont take 2500 should I still do this for 3000? What should I listen, feel for while driving the car?
