E12, E28, E34, E39, E60General discussion and technical help for all year 5 series cars.
Hard to answer the 1st question unless you know more about the car. If you're asking based soley on mileage, I'd say it's not necessarily a factor. BMW's are known to run high mileages if taken care of reasonably. Keep checking back, as some of the E34 guys here may be able to offer some insight on what to look out for when considering this purchase.
The front plate delete is a bumper strip replacement that eliminates the area where the plate goes.
I'd take it to Coombes Johnson in Hamilton and get their 100 point check done on it.
If it has a good service history and looks in good condition, you will have a great car. Is is NZ new or a Jap or Singaporean import? Try to stick with an NZ new one, they have genuine BMW bits. The others have a local content component and different transmissions.
On the tyre front (we spell it that way, because we speak English). If you are running 235/40/18's they will cost you around $3,000 for a set of good tyres. The 17's are about $1,800.

well apparrently coombes johnston have been doing all the servicing requirements - he's done his own oil and oil filter changes and hes just replaced the shocks and put in nolethane bushes.
I never asked what sort of import it was. i know the Jap imports are bad due to a faulty tranmission sensor. and i know the singaporeans are better but the heat has something to do with the wiring so ive been told.
for the price and the test drive, i'm almost definately going to get it, but i would marry a BMW if it werent for the fact i married my wife first. :P
