Default Should i buy it?

Im looking to buy an m3. I dont have that much cash today. I was thinking of maybe financing one but ive never financed before and like to just own something.

I saw this one losted and test drove it. I got him down to 2500. Which i think is a steal. But maybe in wrong.

So its a 1997.
260k miles
New this stuff:

new battery with 3 year warranty, relatively new tires (over $1k), new engine coils, new serpentine belt, oil always changed on time, new water pump, spark plugs, new smoked tail light housing units, new halogen turn indicators, Always used at least 91 AKI gasoline, bluetooth audio and hands free calling, alpine deck, alpine sub, very nice alpine amp.


What doesnt work are:

Snall oil leak
Check engine light on
Passenger windiw needs actuator
Front left turn signal doesnt work.

What do you think?

If this will be your only transportation and you don't have a lot of money to keep it running, don't buy anything German.

If you enjoy doing your own repairs and have the time/money to work on it and have a second car that is reliable, go for it.

It would be my second car. I can afford about 500 a month for upgrades. I want to learn to restore a car and customise one but i never have and i absolutely suck at it. But ill learn !��
