i thinking of buying another 520i,i went to look at a "86"car today,the seats and steering wheel are covered in white mould,in the area's near all 4 jacking points they have been plated and welded,it needs a new hood and a front panel,all 4 tyres are flat it doesn't start due to a flat battery.
the bodywork is free from rust and rot surprising since the car has been stood for 1 year in english weather.
the seller is asking 200GBP($250USD)do you think this is fair due to its condition and the amount of money it needs to put it right?will i be able to get the mould off of the seats as they are cream in colour?

1982 520i auto
1986 520i manual(maybe if i can convince my wife)

last january, i bought 2 86 528es, daily drivers. in march, i got an 82 for parts, in may , i bought a 88 535is,project/ parts vehicle. my wife KNOWS im crazy. :) any car you can buy for 250$ is bound to have problem, how are you with problems?
