    I have previously owned a BMW 316i manual 1997 and loved it.

    I have been offered a BMW 318is 1997 auto with full service history and 108k on the clock.

    Price is £890

    Is this a reasonable price for this model . Was also reading about the automatic sealed for life gearbox. Article said they tend to fail at 120-150k.

    Can you do anything to try and avoid this

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Best regards

    Sounds like a reasonable deal at the price. How many owners has the car had? What's the bodywork like?

    There's a garage near you in Birkby thats got a fantastic rep with members in your location,
    if you're concerned why not whip it down and pay him to give it the once over
