Do hang around and educate yourself on the cars before making that huge financial decision.
It'll definitely go a long way in your decision and you'll get a better feel for common strengths, issues and the market value of the car that you're gonna eventually get
These cars, especially older ones out of warranty are not cheap to fix when something goes wrong. Parts are one thing, but labor adds on (a lot) more than you'd initially think.
Thanks, I was trying to not come off as a dick but in my area there are lots of people my age in 3 series, 5 series, A4's, A5's, C300's, etc. And I know there is a image of a 20 year old in a BMW, but I really do love cars. Hard decision, I know how a BMW can be around ~$1.5k-2k a year to maintain but I guess I have to make the decision if it's worth it. BMW's are also one of the safer cars on the road today.
