well I thought I would be driving home in a newer 4 door sport in black. it is a 2001 with 116k. BMW 325I SPORT Y EG 2001 BLACK 4 DOOR | eBay
I looked at the car and it had a few marks, rear arches were the worst. rusting under the top of the arch and the other side was rusting between the door and the arch. it had some scuffs but looked ok under the dust that covered the car. inside it was a tan colour! and dirty. it had less toys than mine which I thought was minimal any way. didn't have a sun roof or even heated seats!
that's where the cosmetics ended and drive took over. the car sounded well and it drove well apart from it felt like something was holding it back. the clutch bites high and the standard gear lever through was awful. soooooooooo long. (mine has a z4 shifter) but my car felt quicker? not just a figment either, mine is definitely quicker. but shouldn't the 325 be quicker than my 323?
still I would still think twice if it was half the price.
