Should I purchase a 2006 E91?

Hi,

I'm looking in to purchasing a 2006 E91 with 103k miles on it for $10k. I would like to know if it's a wise choice and what are the things to look out for (maintenance and/or repairs) if I decide to purchase it?

Thanks

At 103K there a few things you will want to look at. If the maintenance records are available take a look at them. At around 100K you might see suspension components worn out and other engine components worn out.

At 100k you want to look at belts and coolant color (should be blue).

These 06 E90's are pretty reliable you dont have to worry much honestly. Either way you ill have to do some maintaince when you buy it and you should anyways so you know what needs to be done next on maint schedule. Replace all fluids...belts...coolant. That way you know where you are at.

Thanks Shata. I'll have inspect at a dealer and try to lower the price.

Thanks again
