Wrong to assume that someone can't afford parts on a car just because it's their first car or that they may be young? Some can't, some can.

Anyways, the guy needed a CARFAX.

If he could afford better, he'd be considering better/newer.

Regardless, if buying a 5er plan on $1500 for maintenance... brakes, tires, clutch, oil/fluid change, etc.

Then plan on another eleventy billion dollars in suspension repairs.

i guess u r right that i might be wrong, but i thought it was a good idea to give him a heads up on parts for the E34. i ve owned an e28 before, and parts for those are a killer compare to the E30. plus they have more little bushings that need to be taken car off asap. Idler Arm busshing etc. i jst thought its wasnt a good idea to get a 5 series as a first car.

Don't get me wrong...giving someone heads-up on repair costs, etc is a great help, but assuming that someone can or can't afford something is something else. It's all good. *th-up*

All bmw's are expensive. I'd say expect to pay around 2K right away in fixing stuff up, and 1000-1500$ a year for a 3, and more for a 5. Although i haven't had my bmw for too long, i know the pain of high priced parts

NO cracks about me shattering my rearview glass by hitting a pylon. if anyone asks, ant did it driving his dad's cars around like a madman*th-up*

It's all about knowing where to buy aftermarket parts... Got a rebuilt PS pump for my e46 = $195. Dealer new $575. Why do new? It won't perform any better!
