LOOKING FOR TEH GROWN UP CAR
Previous | 1 | Next

Been recently looking at upgrading from an MX5 to a BMW or similar.

Found this apparent bargin

323Ci with 55k on the clock. Cheap even if it doesn't have a 'comprehensive' service history??

Worth a look at the price. Not many with genuine mileage that liw I'd have thought. Who cares though if goes well and is in decent nick.

Good point. Finding it hard keeping up with the markets nowadays. Don't know whats a good price for what!

You can find a mint 328i going for 1500 but then see a slightly ratty 323i auto going for the same rate along with 20 others.

Don't buy the first car you see :)

I'll wager theres a '1' missing off the odo reading at that price.

I've seen a few rotten ones mind, around the front jacking point - one had proper 80's levels of corrosion. Holes big enough to fit your hand in.:lol:

This is for proper grown-ups...

That, and does the partial service history include a cambelt/tensioners/general Major Service having been done?

If not, keep a few hundred quid aside. Otherwise, looks pretty nice, dunnit?

i think they use a chain ;)

eta:

Is it actually cheap? it appears to have no options at all. the seats are base spec cloth, non sports, it has a cassette player, it has small ugly wheels. I also very much doubt the seats are electric, and can't see the parking sensors in the bumper either.

might be worth a look if close, but i wouldn't go halfway across the country to see it.

Too many old sheds.

It also has the early-style steering wheel, same as used in the E36. Go slightly newer and you get a nicer wheel.
