My Ride: 2004 325ci
2004 325ci

Hey everyone,
So I have a 325ci coupe with 138xxx that I bought about a month ago. The history and maintenance report showed a lot of small little repairs and check ins but nothing major. I recently drove it up to ny from sc cause I am moving up in a few weeks and wanted to make sure the car could get there and back fine. When I first bought it needed all new ball bearing joints in the front. It drove up perfectly except for me finding out it had a small coolant leak which was fixed and on my drive back down a few days ago, the car shut off as I was passing someone going 70. My car is all fixed now but it had to have both the ac belt and large serp belt replaced as well as the fuel pump. I have owned a vw and help my friends work on their audi/bmw's so I know they require lots of time and maintenance but can anyone let me know if there are other small common problems I should look out for? Just really can't afford for something to happen on my drive back up in a few weeks
