I've been looking around for a daily with more comfort than my shitbox civic. I've stumbled upon this 1994 316i E36 for 900€ which just new MOT, leather seats, power windows, manual etc all that good stuff. The only downfall is that the car ran 365.000km BUT it's the second owner which she (yes it's a woman) got it for 10 years (first owner got the car 14 years)

Now, my intentions aren't "drifting bro" or going fast anything like that, i just want to cruise in a good looking bimmer as daily without much headache.

Anyone know how reliable these cars are? i've never had a german car especially a BMW before. What do i need to expect? she said the car has a bit rust and a bit wear but i wouldn't mind that for a car from 1994. I see the car has a m43b16 engine but i don't know anything of how reliable they are.

m43 is reliable once cooling system is taken care of. but its a gutless sohc 1.6L
It's slow as shit, not any cheaper to maintain than the 6 cyl models, but you get all of the problems and unreliability of an E46 (cooling system, subframe, various sensors...). If you want an E46, get a 6 cylinder, otherwise there's no point. Or maybe it would make sense to drive it into the ground, and then part it out when something big breaks.
>buying the small engine
Honda parts are very expensive here in Yurop for some reason.

I wouldn't bother with a 316i unless it's stock, has been maintained and is cheap. I seem to remember that the 4-cylinder engines are pretty bad, but maybe that was the M40.

I bought a E36 325i with 360000 kilometers on the clock. Pulled the head because it was fucked due to overheating, and found out that the cylinders need to be bored to an oversize because they were very worn. The oil rings didn't function properly anymore and as such the pistons were coated with oily carbon deposits. I suppose the car was neglected though, with regular oil change intervals and synthetic oil it would probably have been fine, but these cars are over 20 years old and have done lots of kilometers.
He's talking about the E36. But you have a point, because the E36 has a rear subframe issue as well. It probably won't cause issues unless the car has been abused or driven hard, particularly when talking about a slow, gutless model like a 316i.

FWD with a stick

Automatic just has the power to suck the fun out of almost anything
i've driven 4 different E38s and 3 different fwd manuals, i'll take the RWD with slushbox pls thx
>paddles on a slushbox
You realize it's not going to shift any faster that way

Who said anything about faster shifts, I just want to be able to select the gear I'm in with regards to the RPM which most paddled slushboxes let me do...
I drive a FWD manual shitbox. That said, I'd rather drive RWD with a slushbox.

infotainment systems were a mistake
This is the right path. The problem is that auto company don't update their software and never will. They arein the business of selling cars and overcharging you when it breaks not software.
These are the correct reasons.

This isn't.
My parents' volvo v50 already has it. The goal of this is that you have to buy a new car more often. Yes I know you would probably buy an older car instead, but most people who buy new (boomers) don't.
They're also measurably more expensive than the shitty cheapo SoCs that result in a bad experience.

New MCM is out

The 240Z arrives in Australia but AH WHOOPS NO ENGINE LOL

Honestly take everything they say with a grain of salt, they bullshit a lot of stuff.

They knew damn well that little bike they imported would be in 2 halves, if it was whole it would be considered a vehicle and they'd have a bunch of paperwork and taxes and shit to pay on it, customs inspections, etc but as it was shipped it was legally 2 lots of parts, and since it couldn't be imported for road use anyway, it makes way more sense to do it this way.

The 350Z was bullshit, they staged the whole thing, the car was still registered, the plate can be seen on it on the dyno scene (which I checked and it matches the car). And the spider was staged aswell.

So are they telling the truth about the asbestos shit this time? Since the car is over 30 years old, getting import approval is easy, and the taxes are quite low, so it wouldn't make sense for them to ship it as parts, and then possibly VIN swap it later. And why the fuck wouldn't they just disassemble the original engine, remove any possible asbestos in Japan and ship it over separately then put it back in? This all seems fishy.

Okay thanks a lot.
I'm a brainlet, what was the joke about the light?

Their projects are comfy, films interesting but the testing and "muh made 350z just changed headers its now nfs car" shit was pretty sad.

Got a 2011 Hyundai GLS, manual with 147k miles.
Is it worth dumping 5.5k on? I need a new commuter car cause mine just shit the bed.
I'd try to figure out why it's so cheap. Cause it shouldn't be that cheap.
It's cheap because it's an 7 year old Hyundai economy car with 147,000 miles on it.

That's a decent price I guess but why bother with a Hyundai out of warranty. A new Elantra with leather can be had for $14,000, a base CPO around, $10,000.

You can get a nissan versa with less miles for half that price...

Spec Miata keeps them priced high. Possibly a bit of stancefag tax too.
lol no one here has ever negotiated a deal before, offer 4.5k settle at 4.7k
also a good negotiating tactic is to a pay little more in this case 4.7k but then ask if on the bill of sale he can say that it was a gift, which would remove any sales tax you would pay on the vehicle which in turn would save 329$ which is more than the extra 200 you would be spending to obtain the car.
they clearly aren't OP and the seller are both fucking idiots. Here's how much they usually go for. >>18852235

Spec Miata has nothing to do with the price of a 10thAE NB miata you dumb ass.

Remember how I said I might switch my eclipse for something a little more sporty just to spite my friend with the c3? There’s this First gen Dodge Stealth near me for around 3k, it’s the R/T trim so it has around the same horse power as a GT eclipse, is there something I should know before trying to buy it/Anything to look out for? (Owner is selling because “he’s too old to drive it”)
Use Google you faggot hipster
Stealths had notorious issues with the ECU

thats all I know though
If it isn't the R/T twin turbo then it is dogshit.
If it is the twin turbo it's still shit.

shut fag it gets over 30MPH when you go long distance

Don't be surprised when you get half that stomping it around town. Why else would you even think about getting one?
It is always both. For some reason it keeps getting brought up even though people don't like it here. So either they're being tsundere about this car, or they know that it's easy to pick on and that the people who actually bought it here are easy to bait.
I have a BRZ and I like it
A lot of people here are just mad they can’t afford it. It hasn’t been on the used market long enough
Nobody cares, let this bait thread die
