I am thinking of buying a 1985 528e. And I am looking for opinions and things to look out for.
I am pretty handy when it comes to working on cars and I know that buying a car this old, it will need work from time to time.
This is what I know about the car
1985 528e, repainted (same bmw color) 5 years ago, 168k miles, automatic tranny, new front brakes, alternator,power steering, head rebuilt, never in an accident. The owner mentioned that sometimes there is a slight driveshaft vibration and priced a rebuilt? driveshaft for $400 locally.
Any opinions and or feedback, good or bad is welcome.
