Hi all, once I have sold my E34 BMW 525i I am looking to buy a B5 1.8T Avant auto or 1.9 diesel (as I spend most my driving time stuck in traffic). Would you say that the B5 is a relatively hassle-free motor? My mum had a 1.8T Quattro for a while and it was great. I don't want to spend as much money as I currently am on my old BMW. Hoping to find one with leather interior of course, so far I haven't seen many B5 autos with leather online at all! How much should I be looking to pay for a good example? I would probably have a budget around Ł2,000-2,500.
Also interested in what kind of mpg you 1.8T's are getting? I know auto will be less.
Thanks and would appreciate any feedback!
