2006 Acura or 1984 BMW
So here's the deal, I currently own a paid for 2006 Acura TSX 6-speed with navigation. The car is in excellent physical and mechanical condition with 32,000 miles on it. Additionally, it is still under the power-train warranty for 2 more years.
My father has a 1984 BMW 533i 5-speed that is also in excellent physical and mechanical condition. The 5-series has been garaged for 24 years and has 50,000 miles on it. The only thing wrong with the 5-series is that the tachometer does not work.
About a year ago the BMW's space in my father's garage was replace by a Z06 and he doesn't need the BMW anymore. He's asked me if I'd like to take the BMW and sell my Acura and put the cash in the bank.
I like the Acura, and I've only driven the BMW a handful of times, but it's a nice car too. I'm wondering if I go through with this how problematic the BMW might be since it's so old. I have no reason to think it will be problematic based on my family's previous experience with the car, but I'm still concerned.
I'd like to keep the BMW for a few years at least as I will be buying whatever I replace it with in cash.
