MTurboPower3 --> First of all, punctuation. Second, you don't have a car, so pipe down I'm asking people who've had experience. And about the woman thing... I hope you say that to another self-respecting woman's face and I hope you get slapped.
Clapton --> That exhaust tick makes me feel much better. It happens when it is hot, so is that consistent with that diagnosis? Hopefully? Either way I'm taking it to a BMW shop and having him mull it over with me. Oh, and my current boyfriend isn't really into cars, but he lets me obsess about them as much as I can.
Montizzle --> Yeah, the dad, who owned it needed money, hated the car (he spent $3000 on a $7000 car two days after he bought it by replacing the water pump, radiator and A/C condenser, all of which I have receipts for.) He had his son sell it, who actually sold it $1000 less than he wanted for it out of spite. So I don't think it's fishy.
I've talked myself in and out of buying this car. It is my ONLY mode of transport for school and work. So I need it to work. My car is reliable. This one might be reliable. Can I trade that? I'll take it to the shop and see. Thank you all for you words of wisdom. I really appreciate it.
