In Reply to: About to buy a 525i Wagon - What should I look 4? posted by Sudermatt on January 28, 2000 at 15:15:50:
: I am looking at a 1992 525i wagon. It has leather, the big sunroof. 115,000...they are asking 13000...I know almost nothing about the car....
: What should I look for?
: What is the history (maintenance) of this year/model?
: Is this a good deal?
: Your prompt replies are appreciated.
These are great cars if you find the right one. I am looking for one myself.
Your price sounds right if the car is in good condition. Make absolutely sure the sun roof works perfectly or get a guarantee that will pay to repair the sun roof. It can cost over $1,500 to replace the "module" for the sun roof. The transmission may also be a problem.
A pre-purchase inspection would be an extremely good investment. Spend $100 and save yourself from a $13,000 mistake.
Hope this helps.
