Bought a 93 750 with 60k miles. Clean body, all records, needed the 60k service. Drove it for a year and now... xenon light, gas line, coolant line - 3 hour labor charge alone...., new bushings..... So, now it is current. The bushings, by the way, improve the drive to sweetness. But, Im wondering what, realistically, to budget for the car's maintenance and whether I car(e) to so budget. I do have two years remaining on a good warranty for the biggies like the electronic throttle, engine, tranny etc. But, really, how expensive are these beauties to drive... for one who depends on a garage to provide all the service?
Further... thanks for the responses to the Xenon headlight concern. Dealer, based on my patronage Im sure, gave me big discount 25% off on the deal. Decided to keep light rather than convert to halogen. Gonna try to maintain the car unless it proves too expensive and irascible a mistress.
