    Hi everyone

    Just bought my first BMW so figured I'd better get signed up for some advice.

    It's a 1991 525i, really nice condition and only 55k on the clocks

    Welcome mate,

    Looks absolutely immaculate, very nice mileage for a 20-year old car
    I had a later 525 Auto of the same shape (E34) with 170k on the clock and that ran like a dream so your new car should last you a long time!

    Is the mileage warranted, not had another speedo or the like. That's exceptionally low mileage, just over 2,000 per year. Do you know the story behind it.

    Hey yeah don't worry about the mileage. Same owner since 1991 and has kept all the receipts/got all the service stamps and I have all the MOTs since it's first one in the early 90s. Definitely genuine.

    Drives really well as you'd expect, only annoyance is the vagueness in the steering on centre so I think the steering box needs adjustment.

    Thanks everyone for the welcome.

    Unusual spot for the battery, I thought they all had them under the rear seat.

    My first car was a Calypso red e34, awesome bit of kit.
