Be careful and get the car in question checked out by an INDEPENDENT mechanic that you trust. I bought an '89 535iA with 89k miles and expected
to spend 2-3k "restoring" it. I ended up spending over $5000 fixing everything that had been neglected for the past 10 years. Email me privately for details.
