I just bought a 1997 with 20,000 miles and a year and one half warranty remaining. I looked at 1998's too. The only differences I noticed were the additional air bags (in the A pillars and in the rear doors) in the 1998 and the steering wheel moves out of the way when the ignition is turned off. I believe that's it.

I just took mine in for an alignment today and to get some warranty work done, and the dealer treated me great.... as though I had bought a new car from them. Also, BMW was able to give me the service history of the car prior to buying it.

I choose the 1997 because it had lower mileage than the 1998's available in my area.

No regrets! The car drives great!
