the main stuff to check is front suspension, engine (compression test or leak down test), automatic tranny (don't rev it in P or N, they don't like it), and make sure that the TIMING BELT WAS changed!!

I have a 1985 528e and have been very pleased with it! It comes with 195/70R14 tires so don't fear the TRX dilemma (unless some crazy owner put them on!).

See the website link for the checklist for E28s.

Good Luck!

PS. If you are really interested in the car have it checked by a BMW mechanic!
