I've just won an auction for a 2003 330CI M Sport Auto Coupe.
Minor dents on the bonnet ( caused by a brick that fell off my garage roof in high winds.
NB Remote central locking works fine when locking the car but does not unlock the passenger door. should be something simple, I will have a look at it this week if I have time. There is also a small area of rust underneath the rear number plate around the size of a 20p piece.
I'm happy with this as I managed to get it for under £1800 + Road Tax
However as I am checking my email I received a 2nd chance offer from an earlier auction for a 325CI SMG 2002
81k FSH, 2 owners in superb condition.
But its an extra £300 + Road Tax and the obvious less power
Now I would be happy with either car, and if I did for the older model I would pay the auction fees of the seller as I'm not a complete b*stard.
I've not owned a BMW since a E36 325 1994 which I loved but had to sell, since then I've had a A6 2.6 Manual 1996 which is now terminally ill so sadly Its gotta go :(
So what I'd like is any advice on what to consider with the above, as its a long term purchase and I don't know a great deal about these cars.
Thanks In advance.
