Hello everyone, I'm new here and will be looking at my first BMW. It's from a private owner and the details are as follows:
2000 528i w/62K miles. As options it has Sport and Premium packages Heated Seats Xenon Headlights Power everything Sunroof CD Disk changer Steptronic transmission, Rain Sensing wipers 17" Wheels Tan Montana leather sport seats, navigation and cd changer. The guy added a M5 Grill and M5 rear spoiler.
The color is black metallic. Looks good in the pics but they can be misleading.
He wants $15K which seems low to me. The title is clean and no accidents or other damage done to the car.
Is there anything that I should look for with this specific model? Any common problems. Is the 2.8 litre a reliable engine?
The price does sound low for that mileage and condition. Two things to ask if you have done #1 Have you had an independent mechanic that know BMW's do and inspection? #2 Have you done a CARFAX search on the car?
I gotta 528 and i love it. Engine really smooth and responsive..go for it!!!
