I bought an 87 325is with 69k and have put on 12k in the last 9mos
Things I've fixed/replaced/thrown money at
Fresh Paint on Door 1200
Repair Drivers Lock 140
New Tires at 71K 300
(Dunlop 2A60 205/60 like em better than Mich 195/65 MXV)
Sticky Oil Sensor 50
New Pads/Rotors on Front 250
The car gets about 33 mpg at 80 mph and about 24 regular
driving. Hard stop and go city driving pushes her down
to 19 mpg.
The car had a complete a/c replacement at 60k by the PO
Also they had the passenger pw switch replaced 3 times
or so which seems to be a running sad story with the car.
Engine is fine and pulls smoothly ; small oil leak
supposedly coming from the head gasket. Generally doesn't
need oil in between changes but I keep an eye on it.
