3048Re: [bmw e28] buying a 97 or 98 528i automatic
- Nov 7, 2004Rob,
Repairs on this car on miles dependent
and replacing normal stuff the prior owners
did not replace. This car is timing chain, so
no belt to worry about. Water pumps do last
maybe 60k. Brakes pads maybe 25k, rotors same,
radiator - 7-8 years.
If you are doing the work, you will save a lot
of money. Budget maybe 2k per year for repairs.
Less if you are lucky and you do the work.
This car is an E39. Check the threads on their
board. Look around for it.
