BMW Question

December 30, 2013 @ 04:10:42
How long will a 2000-2005 era BMW generally last in terms of milage? 
thinking of buying one used , got an option with 90k miles on it

They can last 300k+ miles IF you maintain it properly. That's what people don't get about cars. A car can go to shit @ 20k miles due to poor maintenance. So if you service your car regularly, get the tune ups, etc, it can last as long as you want. But more info on that beamer, some have known problems that are un-avoidable.

I have a 2001 330ci with about 101k and things go to shit typically but for the most part I'm able to fix it myself. Just as Ø­Ø±ÙŠÙ‚ said regular maintenance is key. FYI there are plenty of Forums dedicated to your vehicle and I have learned (still learning) a lot about mine from them.

As long as it's not a 7 series you should be good lol. Those are good years for 3s & 5s.

You should be fine if you keep up with upkeep and/or learn to fix shit yourself

I had a 99 323is with 170000+ miles and NEVER had an engine issue. the most i spent at once in the shop was 1600 for a control arm and in reality i could i have done it myself for half that price if not less. the only reason i no longer have it is b/c some jackass rammed into me at a stop sign and the insurance decided it was to much to fix. needless to say im getting a new BMW lol

BMW are amazing cars and you will fall in love after owning one. dont let all these ppl who claim they have lots of problems lie to you. they either A) have never owned one and are just telling you what someone told them B) treat cars like shit C) A&B 

BUT: make sure the one your buying was treated well. if you buy a shit car off jump then yeah, your gonna pour money into it.
