FWIW, I sold my shimmy-free '86 528e with 111k miles for $3650 two months ago. If it had been a 5-speed I would have kept it. (It took about $1200 to remove all shimmy -- struts, thrust arms, control arms, sway bar links and tie rods). Good luck,
: I'm goin to look at a 1988 528e this weekend with
: 135k on it, and it sounds like it's in very good
: shape, all power options and black leather interior.
: I may be able to get it for 3k. If all systems are go
: and the body is decent, is this a good price, a great
: price? I'm pretty knowledgeable about cars but have
: never owned a beamer and am a little nervous about
: expensive repairs, though I know my share of backwoods mechanics around here who really know there stuff ..
: any insights, encouragements, discouragements?
