1987 BMW 5 Series 528e from North America
The best car I've ever owned
My head gasket blew at 370,000. A new gasket was all it needed.
Fuel pump replaced at about 200,000.
I replaced the front seats at about 250,000.
A couple of little quirks like the tail lights getting bumped when I overload my trunk.
The wiper fuse blows often.
This was a car that had been sitting in someone's driveway, not running for a few years. They offered it to us for free. We took a mechanic, who wiggled a wire and drove it home.
I have driven it across the country, and wouldn't hesitate to do it anytime. I can't imagine it ever failing me, or ever getting rid of it.
My husband bought me a beautiful 635CSi, but I secretly love my 528 more.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
