I am sort of looking at a 1982 BMW 320I (I think) for $3995 at a dealership. It supposedly has 60K miles but the odometer shows 109782. It is nice looking blue with very nice tires. I have heard that they are a little expensive to fix, are they? It this a quality vehicle? It is a 4cyl. 5 speed. Opinions on price and quality please. Should I go lower on the price? Can't get a blue book value until I go check the bank's book tomorrow.

Thanks for the links. Any idea why, other that dishonest business practices, would there be such a difference in mileage between the two. Could the engine have been replaced after 40-50K? Is this the only reason I should avoid it?

It could be possibillity they replaced the engine at 60K, or the engine could have 60K on it, but I don't trust it, because any good seller would represent their car properly, by saying "engine replaced at 60K", or "60K on engine."

bummer. I doubt I could have afforded it anyway, but it was a nice looking car with new blue paint. Thanks for the opinions though. The guy seemed so honest about other vehicles. Must not have been the co. owner.
