I would love a low miles one but I know one with 50k miles on it will probably run you 20k or so and the motor could still blow at 60k Miles and no Warrenty? Any suggestions? Iím new to everything BMW but I always loved this car. I know they require a lot of maitnance and care. Thank you!
Where you looking at getting the car from? It might be my old beast that a girl ran into me last year and totaled it. A local guy bought the salvage title and has been trying to sell. Is it in Oregon?

I'm not sure what you have in mind for the track, just track days, or time attack, or wheel to wheel racing?

The acquisition cost may be low, but the operating cost for running it at the track can be considerable (tires, brakes, suspension/chassis, engine and trans maintenance). Then there are hundreds of pounds of computers and modules networked together which makes it a little tricky if you remove the seats and sunroof and airbags and stereo system and satellite unit and climate controls and insulation and carpet... stripping it down to a reasonable weight, and it's still pretty heavy. Would be fun but again it's a big four door sedan you know.
