Q: Advice related to potential purchase of a high-mileage used 335I

asked by on

Should I buy a high-mileage used 335I?

Only if you have a whole bunch of money you don’t mind spending on fixing the thing. Older BMW’s can be money pits as they get older and you are going to jump into that pit. If you are okay with the hassle and cost of maintaining the thing--go right ahead. But I wouldn’t advise anybody to buy one.
