yesterday i helped my boss look at a 1989 250 TD 5 speed

its being offered for 1500 euro

it has 269k kilometers

is dark blue with black tint

the motor was SPOTLESS, and shiny

and my boss still thinks about it........

any reccommendations?

it sounded funny......like maybe it idles too low, but then i noticed shes the 5 cyl.....

still sounds different than mine

since its not registered, we cant test drive

well, i was wondering about it.......this car also has the 3rd row seat, right? i believe so.....the turk who owns it now doesnt speak German well at all, but he conveyed the point that he doesnt know if/how the seat functions, folding it out....

we would have to take the car and get new TüV.......what could be broken?

thanks for the heads up, as im not too familiar with w124 at all........

Man, if you are there and looking at the car, test drive it somehow, you dont want your friend to end up buying it and then taking it for a drive to notice it has problems.

i agree take a test drive but if you absolutly can't have a mechanic check it before you buy it he'll tell you whats up.i almost bought this bmw and had a mechanic check it out and he found all sorts of problems i never noticed.

Third seat is optional.

You have to look to see if it's installed.

Presence of seat belts is a great clue.
