My 21 year old son is in the army and is currently doing his 1st tour serving in Afghanistan, and on his return he wants to buy his first proper car.
He wants to buy a 3 series BMW convertible.
As he struggles to get a good internet connection over there, he's given me the task of researching these cars for him. I've never owned a BMW, and until a couple of days ago I knew nothing about them.
After plenty of Googling, getting insurance quotes, and messaging him for feedback, we've narrowed down the search somewhat. But we now need advice on some of the finer points.
Here's the wishlist so far:
- 3 series
- around £5000 budget
- mileage under 80,000
- 2.2 litre or 2.5 litre
The approximate year that these criteria fit is 2003. As this is also the year that they brought out the facelift model, we want to know if getting the facelift model is a must, or if the previous model is still ok?
Thanks in advance, Mike.
