    Smile Help Raton decide which Beemer to get for $5000

    Advertisement



    So, I'm thinking about purchasing a new car. I just sold my 98' Concorde today which left carless. lol Luckily one of my best friends is letting me borrow her car for two days. So, I've only got 2 days left to buy one. I hate buying a car under pressure. I'm looking for a 3series BMW which is black/silver/red NO more white cars . Every car i've owned since I graduated from high school has been white and to be quite honest I had no choice but to purchase them lol. I really want a beember well, always wanted one since i was a kid. So, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm shooting for a $3k-$5k bracket. Thank you guys.

    You left off a few zero's didn't you dude? Shouldn't it be 30k-50k? What kind of BMW do you get for your price?

    3-5k will definitely get you into a an E36 body style without a problem. Now do you want a four door or two door? (the i or is?) You're also close the realm of purchasing an E39 bodystyle 5 series with high mileage or good down payment for an E46 bodystyle. Where are you located? That will also play a part in how much you will pay as well.

    I dont like them, they are always either slow, or rude and think they own the highway, accidently rolled one when the guy ran a stop light, I had the green and barely clipped him and it rolled and flip him, he was doing like 60 in a 45, stupid stupid cars didnt hardly hurt my suburban

    Err i meant people not cars lol, but Ranton im sure is neither a jerk or a slow elderly rich person

    Check out craigslist there are some ocasional decent people on there selling cars
    It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.

    I am but I need it for like yesterday lol. I'm using my best friend's 99 corolla for the time being and no I won't be a jerk nor a slow poke while driving it. I can't mess around like that either I cannot mess up my record for the kind of work I'm trying to get into or my record as a whole for that matter. My record's squeaky clean. I just want of those to be my next car. I went from a camaro 88 to a 98 chrysler concorde and now I'm ready to upgrade to the car I always wanted . Oh yeah it has got to better not be white or I'll be super upset lol. Thanks for the replies guys.

    it looks like a good one to me. Like i said before, just get it inspected so you dont get hit a couple miles down the road with problems. BMWs can run forever if they are taken care of, so here is to hoping that one was taken care of.

    I have always taken care of all my vehicles and this will definitely end up getting babied. I love that model. I'm really thinking it through. I'm gonna call the guy in a few again to bring it so I can take a look at it.

    i've been searching for this model for a while and i found one but it was located in Pennsylvania. I live in New Jersey that would mean I would've had to change the tittle to NJ and the inspection all over again ultimately costing me if not the same more than this one. Gotta love NJ lol
