Should I Buy?


Asked by Feb 27, 2016 at 05:30 PM about the BMW 3 Series

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm considering buying a 2004 BMW 325xi with 57,000 miles, but I'm
concerned about the common belief that this car always has problems and
the cost to maintain it is very large. Is it true? What can i expect out of a car
like this? Also, what is the value of this make, model and year?

^Scotty Kilmer has an incredible hate for higher end cars. I don't understand why he hates them so much, but he seems to think they are unrealistic. If you know how to shop around for parts, you'll be fine. They are not bad to maintain, especially if you do it yourself.
