    they used to be beautiful cars that everybody wanted cause it was 1 of the only affordable cars out that had the options it had but now theres plenty of cars coming out from lexus,mercedees ect that can blow the bmw out of the water, some when it comes to pricing and some when it comes to reliability and features, i know somebod with a 2004 bmw thats having absolutely nothing but problems.

    It depends on what kind of water. Was it near the ocean? Cause salt water will do more damage then regular water. If it was flooded then it probably has a salvage title. You will be dealing with rust, mold, mildew. I would take a look at it first in person.
