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
