I bought my black 2001 325ci in April 2011 with 170k miles on it for $6000. It now has 186k miles.

I bet my to-do list is longer than yours.

Problems with the car:

AC water leaks inside the car
clutch release bearing
front passenger turn signal is out(the connector, not the bulb)
shift boot has a hole in it
headliner sags
both corner light housings are cracked
rear tail light is cracked
part of the driver side fender side molding is loose
front bumper is all jacked up
lots of scratches and small dings
AC compressor is going out
spoiler is loose
passenger side fog light constantly breaks
passenger door handle doesn't work from the outside
driver door panel missing connectors on the bottom
missing trunk tool box screw
driver front strut bushing
wheels lost sticky weights
brakes are going out
previous owner's dog chewed up e-brake handle
one of the little compartment doors under the radio won't shut
rear ashtray is broken
windshield wiper fluid squirter doesn't work
speakers are crackly
HID headlights don't match
needs an oil change
I'm 90% certain VANOS seals are worn out

Things I have done:

routine maintenance
plasti dip kidney grill and rear emblem
OEM rubber floor mats(car didn't come with floor mats)
had to get a new key made from dealer($200)

Things I want to do:

plasti dip the outside window trim
new wheels
smoked corners, side markers, tails
tinted windows
new front bumper
new HID's with projector headlights
lowering springs
k&n intake
replica shark fin
monochrome roundels
carbon fiber door pillars
new stereo
replace wood interior with grey/silver
resonator back straight pipes
The only thing that I know from your to do maintenance list is to fix the windshield washer. Your pump is probably broken as do most vdo pumps. I suggest buying a new pump on eBay since many people have said they have better quality. I got my meyle washer for $15 with free shipping. eBay is your friend
