Auto trans ZF is somewhat troublesome and tends to fail if it has not been replaced with an updated unit.

Change the timing belt and water pump immediately if they are over 20,000 miles old!!

: I am looking to buy an '89 E30 325i with 123k miles on it as my daily driver. The car is in very good to pristine condition, silver bluish color. It got an auto transmission. It sells for $4000.
: Should I buy this thing? How about reliability issue and maybe help on how many engine related issue does this model had?
: BTW, hp of the engine, even on auto trans.?
: Thank you very much for the help.
