How did you fix your odometer and how much did it cost? Was it the rear end sensor or something with the instrument panel?
The same thing is wrong with my '87 325is, as well as several other things you listed. I'm trying my self to get the screen lit up on the On Board Computer, but it is those little things that prove to be a pain and an annoyance.
So far, everything outside the luxury stuff proves to be durable, and requires minimal maintenance for a 20 year old car. Sorry to hear your car didn’t make it much longer because you are right, these cars are such great little cars!
I'm looking to by an E30 325is, I own a e36 325is. I put a lot of money into the maintance of that car to get it in top shape. Brakes, shocks, struts, tune up, door panels, other little things. I put to much money into that car to get my money out, so I'm going to keep it in good condition. I plan on Buying a e30 325is stock in good condition, so I can make it into a sports car, lowering springs, intake, chip, headers, exhaust, short shift. I love the box look of the e30, But It still doesn't look as clean as my E36 325is. So I'm going to have a stock E36 with a sound system, tint and rims, and a e30 with performance parts. I was thinking about getting a e46 328ci, but I think it will be to costly, So right now an E30 is the way to go. I'm going to leave my clean stock e36 325is covered up at home, and take my e30 325is to college with me. I don't think I could ever by another brand of car.
