Thumbs up

Watzup, I don't have a bimmer, but looking for one, I'm actually E30 fan, but from 5-ers, I love E28 m's and 535. I just want to hear your comments about E28 535, I searched some on autotrader and E-bay, and they were pretty cheap for a decend ride. Mostly I wanna hear if there is a lot of maintaince reqired on them ( oil and timing, hoses, gastets, stuff like that is exception) because keep in mind, I'm not willing to spend 1000-2000 the day I buy it, maybe month later ( I mean that it needs to be runnin for a month) I'm 16..... so, you know.... :wink Thanks for your reply's guys, I apreciate it.

To I_like_Bimmers:

E28
As usual It varies from year to year due to recalls and The after fixes; many E28 owners complaints can be summarized as follows:

A. Prior to the 87 models some auto transmissions did fail at around 100-130k. Some had a solution that involved the drilling of an additional hole giving the tranny better ATF circulation.
B. The guibo: a damper-rubbery disk did break up. I am sure they came up with a better one.
C. The good news? E28s have many choices of upgrades available. Thus and since you are 16 you simply can take an E28 where you want it to be.

P.S. The above was not written on a stone; anyone wishes to add please step in.

regards
billb
