I currently drive a 1971 Triumph 2000, which I cannot fault. It is endlessly reliable and always starts.
however. I feel that using her everyday as i am will eventually kill the poor thing. So, I am seriously considering a BMW E28 5 series, preferably a 520i for reasons i will explain.
As I am 18, insurance is an issue. An E28 will be eligible for classic insurance, and I am hoping to put it on a policy with the Triumph, and I will look into this. I nearly have a years NCB having passed my test pretty swiftly after turning 17. My current insurer has a capacity limit of 2 litres for under 21's, hence a 520i, and I love the 'shark nose' front of the E28, so definately keen to get one.
Unfortunately as is the way with these things I need to save for it first, so cant buy one just yet, as much as i would love to!
Essentially, as you are BMW experts, I was wondering if you could tell me what to look out for, and general prices of these fine cars. As much as i would love a red BMW M535i, I cannot stretch to one, so definately looking at a 520i/525i (if i can find an insurer without a capacity limit)
