Please Help - 1998 E36 328i Sway Bar Link Support
Hello all, I just had a 1998 328i inspected by a BMW mechanic as I may be interested in purchasing the vehicle. The car is 2nd owner, 138K, no accident, no rust, auto, leather, 4 all season, very very clean. Asking price $6500.
However, upon the completed inspection the mechanic noticed that the Right Front Sway Bar Link Support was torn away from the frame, indicating some body work was necessary. Further, the mechanic pointed out that the Radiator had just started to leak, and 2 (Right Front, Left Front) Triangle parts were missing. Im not sure what he was refering to when he noted the "Triangle" parts. I remember him mentioning the triangle parts were required for the intake of air or something. Im sort of a noob when it comes to repairs so thats why im not exactly sure what part he was referring to.
Im really interested in knowing how much a new sway bar link support (including labour) would cost me. In addition to a new Radiator and new "RF and LF Triangles". Any help, prices, and any shop recommendations are very much appreciated. I asked the mechanic, but he was very hesitant to give me price quotes for some reason.
Also, what do you guys think of the price overall?
Again, any help is very much appreciated.
