i've been a member of the bmw cca since 1988 - i currently care for a 1975 2002 - but am considering the purchase of (for me) bmw no. 2/dos/zwei. i have a line on what appears to be a good example of a 2003 530i in decent condition for what appears to be a reasonable asking price. any purchase / inspection advice? what i should i look for? what should i look out for? after 24 years of '02 ownership i know the quirks and am familiar with most all of the items that fall under the header "they all do that." what sort of "they all do that" characteristics does the e39 530i typically display? for instance, this is an automatic equipped vehicle at 100,000 miles. if anybody is aware that the auto transmissions all go at 110,000 miles, i 'd greatly appreciate the information and heads up. thanks very much in advance.
