    Hi everyone

    Just been to test drive and put a deposit down on a 1999 323i convertible in blue.

    Fell in love with it - have part exd my Toyota Supra against it

    Used to have a Z3 a few years ago and have always loved BMWs.

    Picking it up on Saturday.

    Just wondering if there is anything I need to look out for, have pretty much checked everything on the test drive and all seems in order.. but you never know what lurks underneath!

    Anyway any help would be greatly appreciated. Im in the Birmingham area, so may see some of you around hopefully.

    Helen

    Hi and welcome to the forum Helen

    Its maybe a bit late for us to offer you inspection tips....as youve bought it already by the sounds of it

    But the main one I would say is to get an HPi check before parting with your cash to pay the balance of the car..

    It checks its not been a write off, no finance owing etc


    Feel free to post some pics when you pick it up as well
