Hi, i am just wondering when looking at a 2000 BMW 528i, what should i be cautious of? this is my first car. thanks
Hi,I know this is not what you asked but to save making a mistake the AA,RAC,or some one like that,they have a thing where they do a compleat check on the car you wish to buy,if the seller has nothing to hide he wont mind some one looking over the car properly, if you dont want to do that then the best advice I can give is to first make shore that the car in question has all the papper work of eney work that has been done on the car in its life(old mots exc,bills for work done look for eney advicerys from the last mot)service histery is a must,ask the seller if every thing works properly,you want to check the oil it should be a goldy brown,not black,check the engine bay to check if there is eney oil leaks from the engine,(its ok to be dirty but should be dry),If a automatic check the auto-fluid,(it should be a redy coulor and it should not smell like somthing has been burnt),some times with the body work there is repairs that are exceptable wich have been repaird properly,but some are not,(look under the bonnet near the lights just to see if there is eney metal thats been repared,same with the boot.
I hoped that this might inlighten you for just some of the pitfulls,I wish you all the best in finding your car,all the best.
