      Hello,

      I've been searching and searching and i seem to run into alot of
      contradictory information about the market price for a e28 528i in
      Australia at the moment. some places say 4-7000 and others 2-3500
      now i know i bought mine for 2500 on the road..... but that was pretty
      cheap and i am considering putting a couple of grand into it (bushes
      shocks tyres etc.). its a nice car with leather interior and is mostly
      in VGC, but i don't want to put alot of money into it if it makes no
      different to the eventual price i will sell it for.

      Thanks,
      Rob

        Hi Rob, Don't know if this helps but I got 2 x 1982 Auto 520i's in New Zealand for NZ$2000. One is very original condition,full service history ( I am 4th owner - genuine 111700 miles - UK new) and in good condition.The other is NZ new,blown motor but otherwise good condition (even had 3/4 tank of fuel!)Same trim as going car,which is a big bonus - over here mechanicals are average price but trim is very expensive - if you can get it. Regards Dave Field.

          Hay,
          How are ya?
          look man to be honest wid ya, what ever you put into a car you'll never get back especially if you decide to sell unless it's a collectable or antique like the 2002 turbo bima.
          if your gonna spend money on the car its worth keeping it, that way you can make your car unique and custom it to the way you like it.
          the best part of it is the joy you get of fixing up your BIMA.
          take care

            Hi.

            I'm a new member in Sydney, Australia. Just in the process of
            reading past posts in the hope they may answer some of my questions.

            My experience may help answer Rob's question.

            I have just bought my first BMW 6 weeks ago - a 1984 E28 528i
            automatic 220,000km in fair to good but not perfect condition. The
            dealer was wanting a quick sale so I got it for the trade-in value
            he gave the previous owner - A$1,000. It had 2 weeks registration
            remaining, the driver's electric window didn't work, there's a non-
            continuous diagonal dent across both passenger doors, a small dent
            at the front end of the front left panel, a couple very small rust
            patches, mainly around the BMW badge on the boot lid, and the front
            seats are showing signs of heavy wear - mostly minor defects that
            don't affect the drivability of the vehicle. It drives like a dream,
            and I'm loving it.

            I spent about $450 on urgent repairs for registration renewal - $90
            to fix the electric window, and the rest was mostly labour costs
            trying to work out what was wrong with the brakes - the brake lining
            warning light remains on but everything checks out OK.

            So, Rob, to answer your question, based on my experience, you may be
            lucky to A$1,000 to A$2,000 on trade-in, suject to condition. My
            dealer had been asking A$2,990, then dropped to A$1,990 but had no
            enquiries. I saw it advertised when he'd dropped it to $1,000. The
            dealer specialises in second-hand BMW's, so presumably would know
            the true value of the vehicle.

            How much you decide to spend on the car depends on how long you want
            to keep it working in top condition. Whether the vehicle will
            appreciate in value remains to be seen.

            Regards

            Ross
