I am considering buying a 2002 530i (126k miles) for $8k. Is this a smart buy?

Asked by Jan 09, 2013 at 09:13 AM about the 2002 BMW 5 Series 530i

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

It's in great shape, regularly maintained, and has new alternator, radiator, front bushings, newer plugs, and a few other things.

Given the maintainence already performed, should I expect many other major replacements, or has most of the big stuff been covered?

Thanks!

Oil separator/CV Valve is a good replacement item to the tune of about $150. Ask when the brakes were last changed, along with the brake fluid. The O2 sensors need to be done every 60K. I would shoot for $7-6500, depending on if it is a manual with sport options. Otherwise, rock on.
