I think $8,000 is top dollar for this car, see this report below. And, people with $8,000 are more likely to put that down on a much newer model. Once BMW cars reach this mileage, repairs get pretty expensive, one major failure and it's likely to be a show stopper. I wouldn't recommend purchasing this car.

Mark is mostly right, but I do think it's worth considering that it's quite a bit of car for $8,000. There are a handful of things that will need to be replaced every 80-100k miles: Water pump/thermostat, ignition coils/plugs, fuel injectors. Additionally a "walnut blast" cleaning of the valves is probably needed too (the direct injection system accumulates a bit of carbon build up).

driver_02- thanks for your comment. I just think that after 150,000 miles there's a lot of other things that can go pretty wrong. A transmission job in this car would cost thousands, not to mention a blown head gasket, suspension issues. It takes someone with a pretty good constitution to weather all of these issues. Also, there's a certain point at which you cannot be certain about taking your car out of town to remote places without the risk of breaking down in the middle of nowhere. If you plan on using a car passed 150-200,00 miles, at least for me, it is relegated to only places you can reach AAA by cell phone. Maybe that sounds conservative, but, I would not want to be left out in left field with no way to get back. And, if you were able to hobble to a remote mechanic, they might charge you an exorbitant amount to get you back on the road. Either way, it's not a good option.

vrodder14- So, what are you going to do? It's a matter of whether you want to LOOK good or FEEL going? I would always rather FEEL good!
