I know he hasnt responded so he probably doesnt care about this thread but realize that if its cheap then you will put a lot into it, usually when a car is pricier theres a good chance they kept good care of it and made sure it didnt have issues, spending more now is better than double that later.

Maybe skip that idea until you're in a better position.
High insurance is just one factor.
Oil changes, basic maintenance, etc are all gonna be most expensive on a BMW.
It gets even worse when there is a repair, a part that needs to be completely replaced that's not part of the basic maintenance.

If you have a big garage and wanna do everything yourself and have a job that gives you enough money to throw into it, it's for sure possible, just really not recommended.

I wouldn't get a bmw as your first car cause if it's your first car your new to driving and accidents could be more likely to happen and I doubt you'd love that totaled Beamer lol, I'd go with a cheaper car for now and later on maybe get a bmw when it's in your price range and affordable..

Yeah i would recommend against a bmw. From my entrepreneural point of view, it just doesnt make sense. Very low resale value, expensive maintenance and then youre just another guy who drives around a bmw. Why dont you start out with a car or truck that you can buy cash and do things to for fairly cheap to, enventually reselling it it to work your way up.

just make sure if you buy a BMW to never use indicators and always sit up my arse on a 60 road when I'm doing 65... I mean.. when i'm doing 60. Then you're a perfect example of a BMW driver.

To insure it alone will be at least 1200+ in the uk my first year was 1550 on a Ford Fiesta ztec including a black box and a limit of 8,000 miles. Best bet get a oldish feista early 2000s drive that for a year or two get no claims and then buy your insurance will be 800£ or less make sure it has 4 doors your insurance costs more with 2

fest wroteso i really want a bmw as my first car and im saving up money, i know little to nothing about cars, i know the insurance is gonna be pricey but ill be able to pay it off same goes for the parts.

i just wanna know what are some cheap nice looking BMWs that would be nice for a first car, im looking for E23s, found some in my area for a few k but idk, maybe yall can help me out w this

Wouldn't recommend for a first car at all tbh. Known for expensive problems and maintenance can also be very pricey.

First car should be a piece of cr+p that you dont mind beating up a lil.
