My Ride: 2000 328Ci
How many miles do you have?

What up fellas! my ride, a 2000 328Ci is in excellent condition and im about to start modding (finally!) My only concern is the mileage. Is 70,350 miles considered good for my M.Y. car, production date 7/99?? ***** is almost 7 years old. You think it's worth putting $5K worth of mods at this point or should i just wait till the new M3's come out? Wonder how many more miles it's going to get me before the serious maintence problem start happening

Thanks playas

You're below the national average for mileage if you divide the mileage by age. IIRC the national average is 12-15 thousand miles. You average about 10,500miles/year which is excellent

My Ride: waiting to be modded
Send a message via AIM to driftinsequence
2001 bmw 330i with 58K here. im going to dump about $5000 in the future also on just cosmetic and some engine work. my advise is to not spend too much on your car now (it does have high miles after all), unless of course you have the money to back that up
