Opinions on a E30 i have been thinking of buying

Its a 89 325is 160k All the power things, with gray cloth seats, front and back, it has zaender(dont know the spelling) body kit on it, has a little rust on rear hatch and some by the emblem on the hood.

He wants $5000 as is but im sure he will go for $4500

What do you guys think?

that gives me 1500 left over in case of anything. Will i be ok? lol

sounds a bit too good to be true..such low mileage

dont listen to miguel, leathers will kill you in the summer and in the winter for comfort go with cloths.. tho leathers do look a million times better, but it shouldnt be a deciding factor

if the car drives well i would take that in a second..with a markd chip and just a drop in intake (total cost about 300 dollars) that thing will ****ing fly

If the leathers in good shape its great. If its old hard and cracked it looks like ass. I swapped out my leather drivers seat for a cloth Recaro.

I work with the guy, hes in hes 40's and loves BMW, he has owned a few of them, I trust him 100% He did rally in france when he was 18. hes had the car for about a year now, and no its not 360k, its 160k

Also he said its going to need rear shocks in while, but coilovers will fix that.

He's going to take me for a ride in it mid next week then i will see if im going to take it for sure, i prob am becuase i cant stand waiting anymore!!

Oh and its red

ill be painting it white or blue like ive always planned

i was looking to spend 5000 max, i tried to talk him down but he will not go lower then 5000 becuase thats what he has into it

You'll spend twice the price of the car doing that.
