Default The new to me commuter

1992 BMW 318i 5spd. She's not perfect, but with a little tlc she'll get there. Biggest issue is paint fading on the hood/roof/trunk. Come first of the year the car will be going into primer. Has 253k miles, but runs/drivers like a dream and gets 30mpg! Couple of small things that need attention. I already ordered new headlights/corners and fog lights. They are all needing replacement. Need a new lock mechanism. The one in the car is temperamental. Need to clean the windows tracks and/or align them. Front windows have a hard time going up or down. Front seats need to be recovered, but thats later on. Other then a few loose trim pieces it's a great car. Runs great for an almost 19 year old. Got it for $1,700. Talked her down from $2,000.

Not a bad looking car for 1700$. I'd whip it for sure. As far as insurance goes its probably cheaper for him to have that many cars on a policy.

Thumbs up Re: The new to me commuter

Looks good for what you paid. I was disappointed when they changed the grill years ago..some models looking a little more generic then. Yours has the classic BMW grill. High mileage..well again not bad considering the price. Here you'd be lucky to get anything for that money that is still road worthy..even an old Hyundai. A great addition to your vehicle collection! Four different Ford's though..that's great.
