528i, new owner..general info request
Hi guys, I did my " newbie check-in" as requested.
However, I'm still curious about opinions regarding the 2000 528i. I just bought one. I'm not familiar with BMW nor this model's history. But, I do understand BMW has a great reputation (generally) & re-sale value holds up good over time. That's why I bought this car. Appearently 528i is a good model? (been reading a lot here so far) Not looking for specific info (unless offered), just general info. Got this car from a retired Sherrif next door after his wife died. (she ordered the car, he didn't want it anymore, ....understandable)
It has 158K on the car. 4K ago, it had a 70K mi replacement motor put in. I have all the reciepts. Damn, the motor alone was $4,500! To my thinking, I bought the motor & labor to install it...and got the rest of the car for free. The car is, in my opinion, in excellect condition, inside & out and books for about $7K to $9K.
As I'm in the learning stages of BMW, I'll take any input offered.
BTW, it was $6K to buy it.
