528eOwner is an unknown quantity at this point
I just got a nice 528e in good condition, and noticed that some things wrong, but later i searched on the internet and found these things happened to alot of the same cars. First of all the locks used to all lock and unlock automatically with the drivers side lock. Now i have to lock them all manually. Also I was wondering if i could possibly shove padding back into a seat, because the previous owner was a large man (250+lbs) and my seat is kinda uh.. padless. I'd like to know if anyone has a solution to any of theh problems. thanks!

Welcome to the forums! Nice choice of a car.

personally i would swap the seats for some sports seats. bekkers.com has some that weigh 22 pounds...saves weight, plus you wont slide around

Thanks for the tip! I checked it out and they were actually pretty cheap. I was expecting some outrageous price lol, just like everything for BMW. But i still need to figure out whats wrong with the locks.. its not all too importante but i think it would be an easy fix if i knew what was wrong.
