Nice. How many miles and for how much?

About $15k, and something like 80,000 miles. Not bad considering how long BMWs last.

Heh, don't worry. My mom's 1989 Mercedes Benz 420 SEL has it's fair share of problems. One time on a roadtrip the alternator went out, then recently the AC compressor went out, now 3 of the 4 windows in the car don't work. Hell, one of the windows has completely come out of the window bracket so as you drive it just slides down a bit by bit and when we get home we have to manually pull it back up.

lets see
ac compressor shot to crap and rattles really loud
only 1 of my speakers work
my car randomly stalls out!!!
it shakes and idles like crap to the point where it wants to stall out or where it sounds like it wants to die
my spark plugs? have lots of oil on them to much oil? headgasket?
the red battery light wont go the fook away even though my alternator and battery are fine...
sometimes my car wont go into reverse unless i put it in park then reverse


im talking to a friend who works at ford im asking him how to take off the compressor and how to drain the system i just have to make sure the belt will go on fine and stuff liek how to tension it or whatever

Joking aside, what year is the car?
