Are the shocks some thing that would cost a pretty penny or not so much?I have no clue if I buy this 525i it will be my 1st BMW I have allways LOVED them but till now Im thinking of buying this one had a newer one in mind but this is a start=)
Rear shocks are not to terribly expensive and are DIY if you are good with a wrench. Just know that you will need to budget some money for anticipated repairs and/or preventative maintenance. They are great cars, but require a pretty good amount of TLC if you want to keep it long. If you don't have any wrenching skills, then I would dissuade you from purchasing the car. They require a lot of upkeep and labor rates for a mechanic are generally $80 per hour and up.

Hope this helps some.
