The E34s are great cars. A little bit on the heavy side, but great cars.
This is a good price for a 525i. This engine uses a timing belt, so make sure that it had been changed.
If this is a 5 speed, the clutch, thrust arms, transmission seals will fail around this mileage also.

The '89 525i has little power compared to a 535i or a 540...
But the M20 is a strong engine.

89 525i for 4500 in good shape in and out but odometer/obc not working. roughly 130k guesstimate by the current owner. just need some opinions and thoughts please.
