Oldie but Goodie (update)
By zoolander1 on


1990 BMW 3 Series 325i 4dr Sedan


I bought a 1989 BMW 325i with 138k miles from its original owner. She now has 186k. It's in perfect running condition and cosmetically it's near perfect if not immaculate.
I changed the transmission and made it a 5 speed just for preferance but the 4 Speed automatic transmission was flawless.
I get about 23.5 combined mpg with either transmission with mostly hwy driving.
I highly recommend this car to anyone looking for a cool vintage car on a budget. Given you perform the proper maintenance, this car will not let you down and it's a great daily with decent MPG.

Does anybody care for an update? 2 and a half years later I'm still driving this car. ZERO reliability issues. It has never left me stranded and I still love driving it. I foresee keeping this car for a very long time. I bought it for $3700 and have spent another close to $5k to tailor it to my taste with suspension, exhaust and body works. The cost per mile driven so far is excellent.
