Seller Description

This BMW is in good condition. It has 83,000 miles, has had two owners (my father then I--28 y/o male), has had an extensive amount of maintenance of $5,000 two years ago-- clutch, struts, engine lines, driveshaft rubber, battery/starter, new speakers/amp/headunit, and more. It still needs a few things, of which I got estimates on very recently: This is just one shop: parts, labor, and tax Window motors-- they still work but are just slow: $1100 for both New Glove box: $500 Driver's door handle replacement-- you have to push in on the door to get it to open: $500 Driver and passenger seat belt guides: $550 The hood has some soft dents along the surface: $500 Clutch Pedal Bushings: $120 Convertible Top: The top works fine and the canvas is in good shape, but it's just at the age where it needs a new one: $1500 So if you put $3700 into this car you'll have a near immaculate car. I am recently married and while I love the car I cannot afford to keep it the way it should be, hence the recent estimates. I put a lot of money in big ticket items a couple years ago and was not prepared to handle a car of this age and quality. This car belongs in the hands of a more wealthy owner. It has Michelin PSS of 2,000 miles on all 4. The paint is in excellent condition. I only give all the above information as I believe a buyer should be informed when it comes to a 20 year old car. Ask me anything you want about the car, I'm an open book.

Seems like it has always been well cared for by its original owner. It needs some odds and ends and would make a great light project. The price seems fair to me.
