It is with great sadness that I find that I will have to be replacing my
E28 after many years as a daily driver, racking up 340,000 miles. There
are frame rust problems that just aren't worth dealing with.
My mechanic has offered to sell me a 1987 325i that looks nearly new,
not a spot of rust anywhere and all the body undercoating looks perfect.
It was owned by someone he trusted who only racked up 120,000 miles in all
Any comments on those cars? I recall them as being problematic when they
were new and I am generally terrified at the notion of having a timing
belt, but he's willing to guarantee it and sell it for less than it would
sell as a parts car. And it feels like a fun car to drive, maybe more fun
than the 535i was.
I expect all the rubber parts to fail within six months as I start commuting
daily in it, but I can deal with that.
