Just wanted to know a little bit about other peoples thoughts. Research I've been doing shows the car is very strong if maintained. I know the water pump and valve cover bolts / gaskets are weaker points to the car but under my assumption if caught early and done myself I should be able to save some money. Overall I'm putting the tuner lifestyle down for a bit and just enjoying the "luxury" side of the automotive industry.

Anyway car has 82k auto trans. Any tips or heads up are appreciated.

I would recommend 330i if you can afford it. The best value if loaded with options and very reliable. Others may disagree of course.

If you add light weight wheels, perf exhaust and AA tune you will have a fun car.
