Hi everyone! I just wanted to take a moment to say... WOOO HOOO!!! I'm finally back in the BMW family. Ever since I got rid of my 1989 535i-manual a couple years ago, I've been longing to get another 5-series. After a couple months of searching for the right car, I found one that met almost every requirment that I had.

I picked up my new (to me, anyway) 1999 528i Sport just yesterday. It's a high mileage car so there are a bunch of things that I need to fix (i.e. broken front cup-holders, replace/fix external temp sensor, polish plastic headlamp covers, etc.) I'm sure I can find all the DIY info I need here in this forum.

Here's a quick rundown on my car:

Black on black leather, navigation, premium/sport package w/OEM sport wheels, 4-speed auto (definately a must for my 1-hour commute in traffic each morning), electric rear sunshade plus in-door rear sunshades, parking distance control, split-fold down rear seats with the pass-through center door and ski-bag, xenon self leveling headlamps, sport comfort seats.

There it is in a nutshell. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all as I get some posts up on all the projects I need to get done.

Thanks for reading!!!

(Here she is... Isn't she beautiful...)

Very clean car. me likes.

I'm looking into that exact scheme when i do the upgrade in a year or 2. I'll probably look for another 525i ( or 528, 530i ) i forget what years what for engine sizing.

BTW anyone had an e34 525 and went to a newer 525i and compared gas mileage. I'm wondering if there's a big difference. worse? better.

Much better... lol
e34 525 and e39 528 (which is similar enough to an e39 525) and the gas mileage difference is huge. The e39 has a smaller tank (18 gal.) and it lasts longer. lol.

Does your 525 eat gas?

Thanks for the comments. As far as the gas mileage, I don't know about the e34 525i since I had the e35 535i. As I recall, I averaged about 17-18 mpg for both city/hwy driving. So far with the 528i I've seen about 21-22 mpg.
