Stickshift or Auto
I hope the beemer is a stick.
Depending on driver skill/condition, the PO could have put some serious wear on the clutch, and replacing the plates is not a DIY-er project anymore.
I personally would not own a BMW without a stickshift
But in response to your question ........
Clutch replacement/repair is a cost factor in your decision that you will not have with the E320.
