'94 325i bmw

Someone is sellling a 1994 325i BMW for 4k. It has 175k miles on it, which is kind of concerning.

Is this car worth the money?

IMHO...a bit low-balled...I'd ask plenty of questions on its condition...otherwise it sounds like a decent deal.

$100.00 spent on a good BMW mechanic to take a look at it is not a bad idea either!

This guy is a teacher at my school and he's also a real estate person so he has plenty of money, just looking to get rid of the car.

I don't think he burns it or drifts in it....

Assuming he is just a normal driver, how long would this car hold up into the future?

Considering I have an '88 5 series going on 200k miles...I'm prone to say that it should last for a good while yet if found to be in good working order.

Take it to a mech. to have it inspected...best $100.00 you'll ever spend!!

yeah, that does seem a little cheap....

i just payed 6,500 (CDN dollars) , so like 5 grand...

for an 88 325iS....

that may seem a little steep, but the body is free of rust, several minor parts replacements, and cert, safety, and e-test are included....


the guy im buying from deals specifically in euro imports...and says the 92-96 3 series ( e36) are garbage
