With the 95 model year, there were several items we now know weren't the best...plastic impeller on the water pump, plastic housing on the thermostat, the mis shifts mentioned in another reply are nearly as much an issue on later cars....and by the way, it only happens when you're racing your car on a track (shifting during hard cornering while engine and tranny are flexing, etc...)I've got a 95, all I did was to check the car's record to see that the problematic parts had already been replaced....you'll get a much better price on a 95, the 3.0 engine is as powerful (and you can make it even MORE powerful) as the 3.2 and a bimmer PROPERLY MAINTAINED will last 250K miles...
