Working on a 2005 bmw 325i V.S bmw 318ti

Asked by Guru95SN7J Jan 07, 2021 at 11:19 PM about the 2005 BMW 3 Series 325i Wagon RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey so I'm a young guy looking to buy a car to
learn some wrenching on! I heard old w e36 are
pretty straight forward, and have lots of cheep
after market parts.... But I'm wondering if a 2005 3
series would be similar? Are parts for 2005 readily
available at reasonable prices? And are they
similarly easy to work on? Or are they far more
electronic and complex...? Anyhow thanks!
