    I have just joined this site as I am looking at buying a 1998 E39 528i Auto saloon in a few days time.
    This will be my first BMW, assuming I go ahead with the purchase, which I am confident about as it is a good friend I am buying it from.
    I have owned a Fiat Marea TD125 HLX saloon since new in 1999 but my youngest son decided to take it for a spin and got it stuck in a ditch so it looks like it will be written off. (Over £1000 of damage to it!)
    This is very annoying as you can imagine cos the Fiat was a great motor - I never had any problems with it.
    Even if the insurance decide to fix my Fiat I will still be looking at getting this 5-series though.
    Can anyone give me any good pointers to look for when I am looking over this car?
    Thanks in advance
    Mick

    Welcome mate....
    Have a browse in the 5 series section. That should give you some pointers what to look out for...
    Let us know how you get on finding one...

    Thanks for the replies.
    Since joining this forum I have learned loads and I finally bit the bullet and bought myself the E39 525i SE Auto saloon tonight!
    Drives and sounds awesome.
    I have insurance (from online) but all I need to do is try to get a Cert of Insurance and then I can get it taxed and get my own plates onto it now!!!!
    Can't wait!
