I have a similar car (230000km) and I like it a lot. If I have had more knowledge about BMWs I would have tried to find a M50 520i or preferably a 525i (but they are rare and terribly expensive in Finland)
+ very comfortable
+ silent
+ no rust
- responsive but a bit tricky to handle in snow
- consumes a lot of fuel when driving in a city 12-13l/100km
- about the same performance as with a 1.6l mid size car, not a sports car

: I'm considering buying a BMW 520i automatic '89 model driven 145000 km for about 7000$. Can you please tell me anything about it, pros and cons. Thank you.
