  • Looking at getting a new car

    Well i've decided that i'm tired of my saturn and i've started looking at getting a new car. I have narrowed it down to a used BMW 318 or 325 anywhere from 95 to 99. Anyone have any suggestions on which of those two series would be better?

        The saturn just ain't sexy, is it?

        That was my motivation for looking for a new car--a Mercedes C230.

        I dunno which of those Beamers is "better," but I do have some advice:

        PAY CASH!

        For a car that old, banks are gonna freak out and if they give you money at all its gonna be at a high interest rate for a short period of time. Basically, your payments are gonna be about $500 a month, plus insurance. That is the response I got from the bank (and I work for them!), and that is why I am not getting that Mercedes.

          yeah the saturn worked for a few years, but just being so small and having no where to put anything makes me want something a little more elegant and bigger.

          Yeah I plan to pay cash because I dont want another payment. I paid cash for this car and it was so much easier to haggle a lower price when you know exactly how much money you have.

            yeah, carputer + 2 amps + bandpass 10" sub + second battery = no room in trunk. I have to borrow a freind's car if I need to buy anything bigger than 4 days worth of groceries

                      Some choice you got there. BMW, BMW, or BMW. Hrm.

                      1995-1999 M3's (E36, they're called) are not bad cars at all. Definetly something to look into.

                        I just really like the look of the BMW, and they really seem to hold value

                        the only other car i've been looking at would be a toyota SUV

                          The Toy's hold their value very well, and you'll have less problems with it than the beamer.
