How long will this car last for? (Recently redone head)?

I am trying to buy a new car and I found this great looking bmw on Craigslist. It has everything I want and much, much more. The only thing Im worried about is how long it will last. I dont know too much about cars (just what I learned in the 2 years I took auto shop) so I was wondering if someone could help me out with this. The engine has 218k miles on it, but the head was redone at 200k- putting only 18,000 miles on the new head. I know that the head gaskets or head, or whatever is one of the main reasons engines die, but Im not sure how much longer it will last. Some of this extra info will probably help to estimate how much longer this thing will run, so here is the original ad: 1994 325iS CLEAN California title in hand-ready to sell **Tags due in June** I6 M50 Motor Runs Strong M-Sport Suspension right out of the factory NEW Suspension Components: NEW Tie Rods NEW Bushings all over NEW Upper/Lower Control Arms NEW Timing Belts Cooling System Overhauled less than 2k ago: NEW OEM Behr Radiatior NEW Steward High Performance Water Pump w/ Metal Impeller NEW Coolant Expansion Tank NEW Upper/Lower Radiator Hoses NEW O-Rings NEW Aluminum Thermostat Housing NEW Thermostat NEW Driveshaft Guibo instaled less than 3k ago H&R Progressive Race Springs--Car is low, Looks sick!

Car needs High-Octane (91+) gas only due to racing chip BAD: Driver's side door panel is loose. I have the clips, will give them to you, or I could fix the door once time allows. Driver's side bumper loose. Passenger Side Door Trim loose Sunroof Tracks need Cleaning (sunroof still opens) This is a beautiful car, gets the thumbs up everywhere I go. I hate to sell it, but I've run into financial issues and I have to pay off loans before the middle of January. Very inviting manual transmission and very sporty but car has enough power to spin out during a spirited corner in wet conditions. Clutch is in good shape, was replaced before I owned it with OEM clutch, grabs really well. 218k on motor, but head redone by previous owner at 200k. I will also throw in another OBC, a spare wheel and tire, and jack if needed. Synthetic Oil Change done 2k ago, NEW Oil Filter included Thanks in advance!


it will last as long as you want it to last. If you think this car will be repair free your are a fool. If you maintaine the carproperly and you fix it when it breaks it will last forever.

bmw e36 1999 318i heater vent position doesn't move?

my bmw e36 318i vent blower has issue , i have the climate control all working blows hot and cold as it should all lights and display work as they should ac works fine but i can only get air blowing from the floor vents when i push the buttons for middle or windscreen vents it doesn't move at all stays blowing from the floor. i can't hear the vents change direction as they should any advice as to what the problem may be would be great


LOOK under the dash. You have probably snapped off the metering arm that controls how air is sent. LOOK there first. It's an easy fix

About this book
For more than seven decades, memorable automobiles have rolled out of Bayerische Motorenwerke factories. Among the most acclaimed are BMW's M-Series. This new title in the Bay View Original Series begins with the introduction of the M1 supercar in 1979 and continues through two generations each of the M3 and M5 and the production of the 1996 M635csi. Guaranteed to come to the rescue of owners attempting to determine which parts, accessories, and colors will restore their M-Series car to factory-original condition, the book also includes factory records, comprehensive specifications, parts lists, and period literature. Color photography offers detail shots and full views taken in Germany, Great Britain, the U.S., and South Africa, the nation in which the M5 was built.
