should i buy: '90 525i $1500
hello I am new to this forum and I am a e30 owner so I know a bit about bimmers. I come from e30tech.com forums and bimmerwerkz.com forums. I am looking for an e34 to replace my e30, for going to college in gainesville, it would be my commuter car. I know already that the m20 motor requires more maintenance and is less fuel efficient but can take more abuse. Well anyways there is a 90 525i 170,000 k miles and 5 speed transmission, needs brakes: rotors and pads. and the ac is not working, the guy said it works whenever it wants to. Sounds to me like a bad electrical contact. The motor is rebuilt and had major rebuilt and has 60k on rebuilt. Has had major service of $3500 including belts,etc. The car is in mechanically good shape engine wise. But needs ac and brakes and the interior is tired and the seats are torn. The paint is good and has a rust spot on the passenger side door underneath. He is asking $1500. I know this has way too many miles, needs brakes all around: $400, interior is tired, and ac doesnt work:more $. Would this be a good buy?
thank you looking forward to driving an e34.
