Buying any used BMW will require maintenance, and if you don't work on cars yourself, that cost will be more if a shop works on it paying for labor. A general rule of thumb is buy a car around $10K, that is under 100K miles with a good history and maintenance records and 1 or 2 owners and you can drive it for a few good years. You want to find the best example of the 2006 year if that's what you are looking at. That $1600 BMW you are looking at might cost you close to that $5-10K in repairs real quick to get it running right and inspected. Which would mean you spent more than what it is worth. Re think your plan.
