I have a 1994 BMW 530i w/194k miles. The engine only has 100k.
The transmission recently started slipping and most likely needs replace. I found a recently rebuilt one that I can have installed for around $1000 Total cost.
The only other major issue with the car is the AC condensor needs replaced. I have a new one already and it will cost around $100 + Freon to install.
I commute (76)miles round-trip per day. My 530i gets around (20)MPGs highway.
Is this care worth sinking another $1100 into it or to just go buy another older, smaller (more fuel efficient) car.
What say you?
