  • Seems legit. Or you could factor in that , "over the same 3yrs, the price difference in insurance cost, will have paid for the 7series". Plus, it will not have sensor failure, plastic engine failure, etc... You do have a transmission, that will resultingly cost you more in fuel cost. However, guessing transmissions in the New BMW are junk? Most are, these days....?

  • BMW is a lease car now. I used to do maintenance on HVAC systems at a BMW dealership. The manager in shop used to work for Toyota. He told me lease them. New ones are always in for warranty work. Luxury now is too many bells and whistles, most that I would never use. Luxury used to mean reliability.

  • The last of the best BMW's. Most of the new cars are junk. Electric steering, ugly grills, fly by wire. E38, E39, E46 M3 E36 E30, E24, 2002's these will always be the purist ultimate driving machines.

  • I have three BMW's, a 1991 525I with 233,000 miles, 1994 BMW 530I with 260,000 miles, and a 1999 BMW 740Il with 211,520 miles on it. I bought all three of them used with 130,000 miles on the 91, 136,800 miles on the 94, and 119,000 on the 99. I have to replace the timing chain guide on the 99. I have not had the issues you are experiencing, thank God for that!!

  • Tyler...you are the same way I'd be if i could afford to do what you do. I have this weird thing where you can't put a price on nostalgia...and it's not just that...i feel the same way about that body style of bmw being the best ever made. I have similar feelings about other cars, and, for those particular ones, i love to see them bought, and put right. I tinker myself a little... Like, any decent example of car i buy (out of necessity, not hobby) i still like to buy the factory spec (mostly) for anything that needs fixed...and, sort of, put them back to their former glory. I'd certainly do it as a hobby if i could afford to. Keep up what you do, and know that their are other people that see things like you do!

  • Early 2000s BMWs are pretty good cars. The last era of BMWs I would actually buy. Sure, $15k is a touch much, but it should be good to go for another 50,000 miles. They are reasonably reliable once you go through the plasticky cooling system.

  • I wouldn't put too much faith in carfax reports. Consider the following. 1) Not all totaled vehicles end up with the negative “reconditioned or salvage” title. A Carfax report will show if a vehicle was totaled only if two things happen. First, someone has to create and submit the paperwork which changes the status of the title to reconditioned or salvage, then second, Carfax has to have access to that information. 2) There is no centralized database for accident reports/repairs, or automotive repairs. Not all insurance companies disclose or share their accident information to Carfax. Carfax admits that there are thousands of accidents each day which will never show up on a Carfax report. Even if Carfax reports an accident, it cannot inform the buyer the extent of the accident damages, or the quality of any repairs. 3) Carfax DOES NOT verify its information provided by its sources. Carfax cannot tell if the information it received has been tampered or input mistakes of the vehicle identification number (VIN) 17 letters and digits. These mistakes can cause a Carfax report to wrongly show "mileage discrepancies, airbag deployment, accident damage, salvage, etc.…" Any database manager will tell you, “garbage in, garbage out”. 4) Carfax is a "history" report not a “current” report. There will always be a time lag from when a negative incident occurs to a vehicle and when (or if) it is reported to Carfax. This time lag can be significant and allow a damaged vehicle to be sold before Carfax reports the negative information. Carfax is not liable if the information in the report is not current. A history report is like any tool, and there is a limit to what each tool can accomplish. History reports give partial historical information only. No history report can tell you the current condition of any component or system. The ONLY way to determine the current condition of the used vehicle is to have it professionally inspected by an ASE Certified Master Technician for all the mechanical and electrical systems, and Body & Frame Specialist for accident damage. It may cost you to do this but consider what you will lose if you purchase a lemon. Lastly, keep in mind. You cannot negotiate your best deal unless you know the exact condition of the vehicle.

But it's an old BMW, they need some love and care, and like 15+ grannd every 20 years, and you get another 20 years out. And no, mine's got the M54 inline 6. Bulletproof. Also, good work on buying a Good BMW, now lean back, and relax and enjoy it. And Rest in Pice to JR's M6. I knew it'll blow. Oh well. He gots his money back out, still a shame.

Only other thing it needs is new headlining @ £300 and it will be good as new. Get 35mpg on a run, £180 for a years insurance and £240 tax. It’s the cheapest car I’ve ever owned and the most reliable (with a brand new c class hybrid on the drive that breaks down quite often). Love it.
