Hey Guys..

I'm looking at trading-in my 1990 e34 545i for a 97 540iA Sports.. Found one for 14,000CND with 178,000km.. They want 3,000 CND for the 90 525i which is fair for a trade-in..

I've seen the what to look for e39 post before but just in case i miss something what should be the obvious besides the Rad, waterpump etc.. that I should look for? What should I look for if they advertise the 540iA as a Sports Package?

I really like the 540 it's a very nice cruiser in steriods heheh. And since the 97 540iA insurance is 20 bucks more than the 525i why not get a newer one?

Thanks
Jeff *th-up*

PS: Clarence, Derek give me some of your insights ;)

make sure the cats are fine, when I bought mine I knew the cats were clogging but I was going to do the exhaust anyways so I still bought it, but the rad is the most important thing I guess & leaking valve cover gaskets
