As you know the 2.5 engine has plenty of oomph in it. You can get plenty of miles out of it. The rest of the car is pretty much bombproof. The auto tranny on the 2.5 won't last forever. You'll have to replace the front end bushings at 90 to 120k if it hasn't already been done. There's a few other things, but I vote for the E34 wagon. If you look at a 530 wagons, check to see if the block has been replaced.
