I am getting ready to purchase a 1998 540i with 27k miles. The price is 23,500 and I believe that is a pretty good deal based on the mileage. I know the person who purchased it new, so I know the mileage is correct.
The one issue that concerns me is that a few years ago someone mentioned something about certain V8 engines having a problem where they are only good for 70 to 80k miles. I wish I could remember more, but did nto think I would ever be buying my own so I did not pay much attention.
Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
