Considering a '95 540i...

Hey all you 5'ers... I am considering purchasing a '95 540i sedan. It is an automatic with 150k on the odo. Are there any major issues that I should be looking for at this kind of mileage with this model? Never owned a 5 series much less a v8 model. Little hesitant... used to 3 series. I am going to be selling my TDI Jetta and buying a larger car due to a new addition to the family. Lookin for your two cents here.

Read up on the nikasil vs alusil block issue. That's the biggest thing with a 540i.

Other than that, BMW E34 5 series Website

Yeah... was aware of that little issue...she's good on that... just didn't know about the drive trains... specifically the slushbox and all the little quirks one might expect in the electronics or interiors and such.
