    i have never really been into bmw so idk what im dealing with.
    its got a rebuilt title,new tires,new oil change,and some spares for the car.and i believe the mileage is under 100k...but my car aso has a salvage title due to being stolen in 2000.
    what should i look out for in these cars if i do get it?

    My vote is no. When it breaks, you're not gonna have any money ever.

    Plus it's a German auto. The tranny's going out on it.

    Yeah BMW's are very expensive to repair and build.

    If you do the repairs yourself, they are not as bad as you would think to maintain. Problem areas include the rear shock mounts going bad, and a shitty cooling system. The end tanks on the radiators tend to fail easily as with the water pump impellers.

    The drivetrain on that car is very solid.
