My Ride: 2005 BMW 325 XI
Dump my car for a corolla or keep driving it.

Im a senior in high school and would love to keep my 325 but I have over 4k in repairs such as tirrods bushings suspension differential leak and much more. The car drives 100% fine . Will it last? Im not paying the money therfore not going to fix it because its only worth 5k

How many miles are on it? Can you do the work yourself? If you can do that work yourself it saves a bunch of money and would def. be worth keeping. but if your taking it to someone I would just sell it and get something that is 100% reliable. Are you going to college? are you going to be driving it all the time? or not? If you aren't going to be using it just park it and work on it when you can. From the sounds of the repairs the only problem I would see is the differential leak.....is it from a axle seal or what? The other stuff is just it's an old car and stuff needs replaced haha. But if the differential is leaking out of the axle seal I would go to Autozone and get a new one for 90 bucks and put in...also it has a lifetime warranty. You are not giving much information to go off of to make the best decision possible.........
