    No. A used BMW, even a reliable one, will be expensive in maintenance.

    Is it a good first car? No, but there are THOUSANDS of them out there, so I guess there are some people who would disagree with me.

    Screw opinions on the Internet. Ask your Insurance Agent if it is a good car.

    No. Despite what the person tells parts will be tough to find and expensive. In a perfect world, yes. 15 yr.old used BMW’s do not exist.

    Depending who drove it before and how it was driven. Could be a lot of abuse in 15-20 years
