Attn: 524d owners!

First off, Do we have any 524d owners?

Second, can I get some impressions on it? Ownership, reliability, maintenance, driving? How does it do in the cold?

I love my bimmer, i miss having a diesel, and I can't afford a new 328d. Living in the US, that pretty much leaves the 84-85 524d.

I'd like it to be my daily driver and I'll use my 325xi and/or Subaru Outback as backup if I need to take it down for maintenance. I do roughly 700 miles a week so I think it's important to have a back-up vehicle but I would like to move toward parting ways with the Subaru.

Is this a reasonable expectation of a 30 year old 5-series?

Enough miles to make it to the moon... Here's to getting home.
