In Reply to: Can buy a 85 528e 204K miles for $500 is there posted by anything I should watch out for? on January 12, 2001 at 05:51:28:

still get your driving dollar value out of it.
It probably only needs tires, and minor stuff.
They're tough and parts are not as high as Toyota!
Saw this car sitting and the tires go flat after about 6 months so I asked if they wanted to sell. The lady said it had some problems with a fuel pump but was ohterwise oK,
Interior is a little beat so they may not have taken car of it very well.
Is there anyting I should watch out for with this particular year of model?
Is $500 OK to pay for one that doesn't run?
Thanks for your info.
