hi im going to buy either a bmw z3 2.l or a toyota mr2 both around age 2000, and both around the 80,000 milage mark, havent driven either yet but was wondering which one would be the cheast to by parts for as they are both pretty old and when servicing to i have to go to the dealer for repairs ie bmw or toyota , thank you
good morning my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you this morning.

BMW is the expensive one. a lot of parts will be dealer only and they are not cheap. the Z3 is a great car but high maintenance and high frequency of repair.

the MR2 is much more reasonable for costs. parts are available in the aftermarket and the reliability is much better.

I think you will be better off with the Toyota.
