My Ride: 2004 545i 6 speed, Silver Gray A08, Gray leather Mods: Hard-Wired Passport 9500ix LIVE , K&N Air + RPi Scoop, Mtech V2.1 AE, ACS pedals+Ebrake, flip up front plate, OEM 172's, Custom M Kit, M3 shift knob, Eisemann Race Exhaust 2005 X5 3.0 (the nightmare) 1998 528i SOLD @ 173K

hey guys,

im looking at buying an e34 touring 1993 525i. It has around 180k miles and is in pretty rough shape. basically the seats are shot, radio says code, headliner is really rough looking, drivers door wont open from inside, the guy says the 2 wheel bearings need to be replaced, needs tires, both drivers side windows are off the track, carpet is pretty nasty looking also.

What should i be looking for on this car to really look out for? almost no rust just a ding on the door thats rusted.

I have some seats from my old e39 fronts and rear, maybe i could do a swap on those, i have a set of snow tires from my e60 (this will be my winter car)

Its a pretty decent car on the outside the inside is just beat.. Any ideas on what i should offer him? He's asking 1299 and i wont go anywhere near that, i know edmunds in rough shape says around 400 for rough private party. Im thinking 300-400 bucks.

ouch... don't even bother! That price is ridiculous @1299 and I doubt he'll go below $500 with that asking price. I'm guess he thinks it's a BMW and should be priced as a BMW with all those interior defects

Unless he's been the owner for the past 17 years I'd say pass.
