I have an 98 328i with 215k.
Yesterday coming out of a corner under acceleration, the car shuddered like it was breaking traction. Subsequent driving showed under acceleration the car starts missing or cutting out. The fault code reader shows double bars-no faults.

So this car has been great, still loses no oil every 6k miles, and is in great shape (sorta see below).

The question I'm struggling with is a deer ran into the front rt fender-hood-both passenger doors and I have $2800 for repairs.

The first question is does anyone have any ideas why it's running this way and the second is should I spend the money on a new-used car?
