Cheap and reliable motoring so far

I think, if you are going to buy an older BMW it is worth having a little knowledge as there have been niggles bit nothing that I've had to take the car to a dealer for.

I bought at 109000 miles and I'm glad I bought newer with high miles than older with low.

I've had to replace one ignition coil due to a misfire being reported by OBD.

Also a Vanos solenoid.

That's pretty much all the surprises and in total those 2 items cost less than £100.

Worth doing your research before buying but this has worked out well so far.
