Default Bmw 325

Anyone ever own a 325 BMW? I am looking at a 2005 with 50K miles on it, manual shift 2 door coupe fully loaded, all the good stuff in great shape never driven in snow. Anything to watch out for on this? Friend is trading it in on a new car and I can buy it for trade in value.

Thanks for any input!

Great cars, but remember it is entry level BMW. One thing that goes on all of the BMWs are window regulators. it's a 500.00 fix at a dealer, but parts are cheap and easy to do your self. Check the bushings on the front suspension. another easy to fix thing. It has low miles, and if it is a buddy, ask him about the maintenance. Find a good German car guy to look at it for you , and work on it.

Thanks for the feedback. I do all my own work on cars, so service costs are not a concern. I see parts are pretty resonable as well.

All maintence is up to date via the BMW dealer, although it is due for brake pads soon.
