Buying it for looks/status (and not caring about performance) is well.... weak.
I give respect to guys who go out an buy a brand new BMW.
That says something. If they buy a New BMW and have a house, you know they've worked hard.
buying a used BMW.... anyone can do it. Driving an E46 these days.... the guy in the New Sonota sitting beside you probably spent more money. No real status...
buy it because you love to drive...
as a first car... a BMW is not the car.
by a BMW because you love to drive, love the handling, love the road response...... and you'll learn to hate the unreliability of these cars.
.... reliability and German cars don't really mix.
Please take the advice and get an insurance quote first.
Putting it in your parents name... well... that's probably insurance fraud.
Most will get away with it.. but if something major happens.... they'll question why the car is at a University Campus with a parking permit....
Just be careful.... The adjusters are paid to avoid paying out…
Better buy a car that you can be primary on now...
