So I will make this as short as possible. I currently drive a 2011 135i. The car is in the final stage of lemon law. I'm just waiting on BMW to give my lawyer the word for a surrender date.
The money I get back from the lemon, I plan on using it as a down payment to purchase my first property (condo). I plan on using the money I would pay for my monthly payments to save to grow on top of the money I get back from the lemon.
Obviously I need a car for my daily commute and have found 2 cars that caught my interest. Keep in mind I will be keeping my budget to a minimum for the purchase. I still own a 2008 328i coupe that my wife drives but we both work so still need a second car.
Here are the 2 cars I am stuck between:
1988 BMW 325i sedan
practically in mint condition
everything works on the car
1995 BMW 540i
have not contacted the seller yet so idk the overall condition
Just need some advice on which would possibly be a better choice.
I plan on keeping the car between 6 months to 2 years. maybe even keep it if I go with the 325.
