Now looking to buy a 5......

Series, looking @ a 97' Black on Black 528i 2 owner car with a 161,000 miles on it. They are asking $4,500...... My question to all you 5 experts, would you consider this high mileage for what I consider a touring machine?

johnny,

Ok, will do......Teh Prof!


Thanks for the feedback Golfgod41....

No denyo, I'm not selling the e36, I love that car so much that I hardly drive it......I want to preserve it, I purchased 2 years ago with 86,000 miles on it & it know has 96,000 miles on it..... sounds quacky, but I don't like driving it to work everyday because the roads into my job are very industrial with a lot of trucks kicking rocks up......
johnny,

if you love the 3 then it's pretty certain that you'll love the 5 too. It took car of the year,in it's class, every year it was in production.Not many maintenance issues either, although parts are a bit expensive but it's still 1 of the better cars on the road today.
check out the 540 if you can
