Buying advice- 1995 BMW 525i (E34)


I am a college student. I always wanted to own a E34( my dream car). I have found one(black color) with 186k miles for 4500$. The car is in good condition with new transmission and tires.

I wanted some advice on maintenance costs per year for this model and if there are any major flaws i should look for before buying the car.

Well an E34 is an amazing car with a timeless design. Maintenance costs are usually lower if your a DIYer and capable of doing it yourself. Other then that as long as maintenance intervals are followed they will last a long time. Their are Bentley and Haynes Service Manuals available for the E34 which will greatly help with any technical work or troubleshooting. That and their is always us!

The coolant system was prone to failure due to using plastic components that became brittle and cracked with age. If they are the original plastic pieces expect to replace them soon, and try to budget accordingly. Their are excellent aftermarket options available. Make sure you get an inspection done. Any faults in the car that are minor can also help being the price down.

Any other questions feel free to ask.
