They (V-8s) are a bit prone to oil and intake leaks. The bolts retaining the oil pump often loosen as well. The blocks made of Nikasil are a problem in the U.S. due to the fuel used here. I don't know if it's an issue in Oz.
Otherwise all your usual E34 idiosyncrasies.
That car must seem a rocket ship after trundling about with two wheezing liters
