You are slightly mistaken. The 528's automatic tranny was made by GM. The 540's automatic tranny was made by ze germanz.
I think if properly taken care of this car will last you another 150000. My 540 has almost double the mileage of this car and is just fine.
The usual V8 maintenance items list is longer than the 2.8 6-cyl. My favourite one was the valley pan and gasket, which costs a couple thousand to replace and goes bad on EVERY SINGLE M62 engine.
I like the look of the 540 in the ad, but the price might be a little high. These cars have really come down in value since I bought mine...much to my chagrin ;-)
