Old used BMWs can be a money pit due to price of parts and labor to fix all the things that go wrong. It is your money.....

Like Bob said, could be a money pit. If you DIY, it might be a might be a good idea. I use this site.....www.bimmerfest.com. Do some research first. Parts are also expensive. The higher the series the more expensive parts can be. I use this site for parts....www.fcpeuro.com. Good luck looking.

The '99 528i may have a cracked cylinder head. The inline 6 cylinders are notorious for that because the cooling system is high maintenance. These engines don't like to be overheated so be careful there! The window regulator may not be a walk in the park either. I believe these cars have side impact airbags incorporated in the door panels. So keep that in mind as well!! HTH. -Jim
