How to buy a 2002

My super duper wonderful wife said that she wants to get me a 2002 for my 50th. birthday. Did I mention how cool she is?

I am pretty mechanical inclined, but what we would want is a nice condition driver, not a project car.

There are nice ones on ebay, but it would be nice to see it and have someone look it over.

Any faqs out there as to what to look for, where the problem spots are, and such.

How often do nice drivers become available in the mid-Atlantic area? I can wait for the right car.

Thanks

Soory

I hate being the guy that did not search first. I'll start doing my homework.

you also have a very active and fairly big group of us 02 lunatics here in the DC area who would be happy to help you evaluate cars you find.

the faq link is decent start on research. i was serious about that maccartney book. it is an awesome reference and intro to what you are getting into.

have you dabbled in old bmw's before?

Welcome to the madness, Ray!

What is the wife's budget for your present?

That's useful information, too.

No old BMWs, my current one is a 2009. First car was a 1970 MG Midget and I had a nice 71 240Z.

Would like to stay under 10k

Thanks

Look around and let us local guys know when you find one that you're willing to look at and one (or more) of us will go with you. Also, get an idea of what options and/or upgrades you'd like, such as tii stuff, 5 speed, sunroof, colors, brake/suspension upgrades, etc.

If you'd like to stay under $10K, look in the $6-7K range and leave yourself some room for repair/modification.
