It's like $4400...
eh...nevermind, maybe a nice mod will come by and delete this for me
that seems hella-expensive, imo.
As for being too many miles, it all depends on the care that the previous owner(s) took.
Bottom line, however, is that this is not a reliable commuter car, and you can expect to spend money fixing it. If you enjoy that (some do) then it's a cool rig.
Or you can just drop in an s50/52 motor
I have a 1994 325i 5 speed on the used lot that i work at and it runs great. They are 1/4 of a million miles cars if you service them right. tune-ups every 30k and oil changes every 3k and it should be fine. But this totally depends on what kind of condition it is in and how well it is cared for. I've driven an 95 E36 with 200K on it and it drove better then some that i have driven with half the amount of miles. I have like 10 E36's on my lot right now in Seattle, but none that cheap. We sold that 1995 325is with 200K for $8,000.
One word of advice though. Only buy one of these high milers with a manual tranny.
