I actually picked it up about 2 months ago, but other things came up and its just been sitting. Its a 1992 BMW 325I with 142K miles. I bought it on an online auction after only seeing a few half blurry photos, but the price was too good to pass on.
I drove it home about 60 miles on the interstate and one curvy side road and it was awesome! I bought this as a flip but am a little scared I might become attached to it. It was last registered in 2012 so it has a few issues:
-power steering not functioning
-front brakes are grindy
-top wont fold all the way down
-can’t see out the rear window
-central locking doesn’t work, so the fuel cap can only be opened by the backup which is a complete bitch to get to
-slight occasional ticking coming from the top end
-needs a new battery
-paint has some fading on the hood/trunk
-many multiple small issues (light bulbs, trim, mirror, etc.)
Interior in fairly good shape, unfortunately an auto but still fun.
Engine bay is a complete mess and needs a lot of cleaning/refinishing.
Previous owner left quite a few goodies in the trunk which should come in handy!
Next steps are to replace all fluids, the front brakes and get some miles on it.
