My name is Richard and I have decided that I want to enjoy driving more - so I have settled on buying a BMW.
I need a motor that I will have for a few years and I don't want to be bored/unhappy with it too quick. Now here's the thing, I'm probably going to need a bit of advice on what to look at. Initially I had my heart set on an E46 330CI but in all honesty I think that will still be out of my price range. Still, if I were to find one...
I'm going to have a maximum of 5.5k to spend, my requirements are:
- Coupe > Touring > Saloon (Order of preference)
- 2001 or Newer (To avoid rear subframe issues)
- Ideally 325i (Would a 320 or 318 be dissapointing?)
I've noticed a fair few BMW's are high milage, is this something that should worry me? My Saab is high milage and it's just not a nice drive any more (Plus the turbo and gearbox are on the way out).
Am I being realistic? Any suggestions welcome...
Thanks for reading
