Picked me up a cheap commuter

So I'm about to start doing a lot of commuting and I didn't want to rack up the miles on either of my 3 vehicles. The ranger has been my primary driver, but the miles are still low on it and I want to keep it that way. So I was looking for something cheap and I stumbled on to this on CL and picked it up. I was wanting something with good MPG's, 4cyl and 4dr as well as manual. I didn't really want a FWD car. So my choices were limited, but I found the perfect ride. Lady also said she's been avg about 30mpg in it. It's a 1992 BMW 318i. She's not the prettiest car, but it runs like a dream. Lady was asking $2,000 for it and I talked her down to $1,700. Getting it tagged and insured next week.

Re: Picked me up a cheap commuter

Wow, another car?! I love those BMWs. I wish I could get a commuter and not have the Stang as my DD. Might be picking up an old Ford F150 to work on. Not a commuter but something to have fun with.

lol yep another car, but this one will save me a decent amount of money over the next year. Not to mention miles on the stang/trucks.
