Looking at buying a 04-07 530, 528 or 525?????
Guys, Im looking at buying a 04-07 530, 528 or 525 & was wondering what issues, if any, that I should be looking for? Are there any major issues with these cars? Im looking at vehicles nearing the 100k mark and just thought that I would ask first. Thanks ahead for any & all help.
I have a 2006 525xi with 84,000 miles. I'm the original owner. I've had the following problems:
With only 58,000 miles:
1. Alternator belt (stranding me and requiring a tow).
2. Valve cover gasket causing engine oil leak.
3. Crank shaft seal.
Sometimes the 4X4 symbol comes on telling me that the xDrive isn't working, but it always goes away the same day. I think it happens when the car sits, something electrical maybe.
Last night my trunk wouldn't close. The problem is electrical. I got some help here and posted my experience: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=646789
It sounds worse than it all is. I still love the car and plan to keep it a long time. I'll bet you can get a good deal in light of the age and remodeling in 2011. What are you thinking of paying? I figure mine is worth in the 14K range, but if you're looking at 100K miles likely it will be cheaper.
