about to buy a '94 540i

The car has 175Km on it and drives well. Its silver on white interior (the interior is kind of dirty). The engine was replaced under warantee buy BMW Canada at 77,000km and the tranny also replaced at 165km.

This will be my first BMW (long time Benz owner - no quality after '98) and I want to know what else I should look for on the car.

I'm taking it tomorrow to a BMW shop that a friend uses to get it inspected.

Any advice?

Very enjoyable and fast car. you could drive it all day without a sore muscle. be prepared to spend a lot on gas though.

i would take it to several BMW shops instead of just one just to make sure there are not any problems with it. parts are expeisive to replace, and so is labor if you want to get it done. let us know how it turns out.
