Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used BMW 3 Series sports?
Check the hood keeps out the rain, that it raises and fastens correctly, and that the heated rear window operates. If the top is powered, check it runs smoothly in both directions. Inspect its fabric for rips and then do the same for the cabin, as minor repairs will prove expensive.
Check the front mats for damp because the seal at the base of the windscreen can leak. And, watch for rust eating into the rear wheelaches and the bottoms of the doors.
