Ask Scottie. He's on the board here and posted a list of things to check for a week or two ago. I was looking for it the other day, but couldn't find it. Find one of his posts and email him.

Hi

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.

Thanks
James
