Default Wanted: BMW or Other Wagon

Greetings All,

It is time for my 16 year old to learn to drive and get a car. Since she plays the string bass, she needs a car big enough to carry her instrument.

To avoid "blah" car syndrome, I thought we would get her an older BMW, Mercedes, or another unusual wagon. I'd figure I would start here.

Anyone have a good older wagon for sale, or a good place to look for a solid car? Manual or auto, as she IS learning to drive a stick shift.

Thanks for any leads!

VaSteve has one HoF thread

My song played the bass (loaned by the school) and we just chucked it in the back of my pick up. (It was a short ride).

Good luck with the search.

While not for sale, we bought an older Audi A4 wagon for similar reason (son is a long pole defender in lacrosse - 6ft long sticks!)

Plenty of Jetta wagons out there too.. GLWTS!

You can find an old Cayenne cheap. Rear seats fold down and it's a tank.

Miata is always the answer, unless you need to carry something. Then its a fo fo.

Don't go too much older. The most valuable think in that car is your daughter - safety features are prime!

Do not get an e46 wagon.... Unless you like doing a lot of repair work or have deep pockets to pay someone to fix it.

I put over 320K miles on a B6 A4 Wagon, 1.8T with a 5 spd. It was a great car. One of my local friends bought it and it's still going. I think it's at around 340K miles.

I'm not sure if a string bass will fit in a 2006 BMW 325i with the rear seats down. But I'm selling a nice 325i with a proper stick shift. Come on over with the bass and we can try it
