During my test drive, however, the oil light came on and stayed on for last mile or so. I had to add two full quarts to get the oil back up to "full." After some poking around on the net, I learned that this car has both an oil level and oil pressure sensor, and I believe that it was the light for the former that I saw. I'm thinking (hoping) that the engine should be fine because the car has a 7-qt. sump . What are your thoughts?
Does anyone have experience with keeping a used BMW going? Is it true what that say that "only a rich man can afford to own a used BMW?" I'm certainly not a rich man, but I can do all the work myself. And I've seen that decent quality aftermarket parts for this car aren't too expensive. Am I being foolish in even considering buying this car or should I go ahead and do something nice for my other half?
