How to Buy a Classic BMW

  • 1). Consider a 2002 built before 1974 - you'll get chrome bumpers and round taillights.

  • 2). Seek out the 2002tii for a model that will perform great and hold its value over time.

  • 3). Find a 1600, the predecessor to the 2002. It has a slightly smaller engine but similar performance.

  • 4). Look for a 3.0CSi if you want the ultimate sports touring coupe. Built from 1971 to 1975, these cars are incredibly elegant and fast.

  • 5). Understand that most BMWs have been driven hard. In particular, look for cooling problems - especially cracked and warped cylinder heads - and, of course, rust. Have a qualified BMW mechanic inspect any car you might wish to purchase.
