What $70? Did you have it inspected by a BMW dealer? I am asking because I am purchasing a 1994/530i/5spd from a dealer in MA. And I am having them do the checkup/insepction. They are very very good, will fix all that is wrong.


for my E34. I had them take it to the dealer nearby in Lancaster (terrific dealer- real nice and accomodating) for a pre-purchase inspection. The posting read as though the thing was pristine and needed nothing. Well, it needed around 2K in repairs, some of it very obvious and undisclosed. Didn't fly. NOW don't get me wrong, the guy at Timal (Tim) was nice, didn't argue anything, and I quietly left it alone after calling him to let him know of the issues. I'm not here to suggest they operate poorly as perhaps (just maybe, you never know) this guy didn't know about these things until I got the inspection done. Just a tale from the files of "best 70 bucks I ever spent."

Have a great weekend everyone!
