• 285k miles !
    Blowing out the dust in the engine compartment and a few minutes with a damp rag would make this a lot more attractive. 285k well taken care of miles vs 285k can't bother to even keep the engine clean miles would be in the back of my mind.

    "Just had the subframe checked out, and there are zero cracks or spot weld issues."
    Is that a thing with these? That's kind of specific and not really reassuring. Do BMWs have frame failures the way Porsches have IMS failures or something?

  • Thanks for right nice information about this best topic Such an Awesome Blog !! Keep up the Good Work !! all details about it really interesting. SarkariExam

  • I agree that a clean engine bay would be much more attractive to the buyer as well as a more flexible attitude toward the prospective buyer in terms of price, trade, shipping, airport pickup and perhaps calling it a "shooting brake" or Bavarian equivalent? 🙂 Perhaps he does not really want to sell it but is being prodded at the home front?

  • To convey an idea of what has happened to prices for these, I paid $10k for mine with 93k miles — in early 2011. If this Shoe is as represented, it can be a good value. Yes, subframe separation is a thing and can be catastrophic, but isn't all that common and can be prevented by proper reinforcement for $2,000 and up.
