I want to buy a winter car.
I saw a 1992 e36 325is on kijiji for $2000. Going to look at it tomorrow but wanted to know if anyone of you has experience with these and if they're reliable winter cars. He installed a new waterpump, thermostat, radiatior and fan clutch.
check the high-pressure power steering hose and reservoir to see if it is leaking
head gasket, u can check under the radiator cap for milkiness consistency, also if take the oil cap off while the car is running, check for white smoke
they are great cars to drive, the have just deteriorated over the years condition wise
>"yes sir, just allow me to perform this compression test*
same as most cars - when the car is running remove the oil cap and look for light brown creamy 'emulsion' on the inside of oil cap and inside the engine head. also if the gasket is good the engine will seemingly begin to stall after the oil cap removal, you will hear as the rpms will slightly decrease. Such gasket checks are mandatiry for all older bmw 6cyls because they have often been overheated.
Why do you poorfags insist in buying shitty old bmws? Everyone I know that has done it regrets it since it turns into s money pit, you arent going to impress anyone with a shitty old bmw by the way.
do people actually buy old bmws to impress people? In europe they are just very cheap fun cars with the best price/performance mostly owned by drifters/enthusiasts/immature young men that hoon around. Could say they are the miatas of europe
