    well heres the final car..my bro just picked up a 1988 bmw 325 i_s
    guy wanted $750 because he hadnt been driving it,but instantly we got him down to $600,and hes got money(has H2,boat,big house,,the whole shabang)so we go to look at it..there she is,a red bmw sitting under a tree,not drivin in atleast a year.there was this green shit all over the paint,guy says it just needs a battery,throw our battery in it,and starts right up,runs mint,take it hime and pressure wash it,paint is a little faded but still looks good,we fixed the minor suface rust,and overall the car is in good condition,,no dents besides the passengers fender,but thats getting fixed asap
    so my question is,what goes wrong with these??info and all that is appreciated..
    ive heard the timing belt should be replaced every 60k?

    Not sure on if it's a chain or a belt but you better make sure they know what they're doing or you're gonna have pistons hitting valves.

    I love those old BMWs, my friend had one that he had setup for AutoX, not sure if it was the same exact car but it was pretty sweet, his would get sideways too.

    Are you interested in that trade at all ? As long as your car runs, thats all I need. You're walking away at a steal. I know what you paid for that, and I certainly know what I have in the CRX.
