Hello everyone, first post.
This is my first time buying a car second hand myself, im 19 and my dad bought my first car for me second hand so i wasnt involved with that (mk5 Golf) and I just bought myself a VW Scirocco new from VW...however i want an old BMW (particularly an e34) for a second car and have done for a while. But im being SUPER paranoid as this is the first time buying second hand so im hoping you guys could help.
On the internet I havent seen evidence of the auto box in a 1995 535 after a bit of digging, and if it exists whether it would be 4 or 5 speed. Locally a bloke is selling 2 1995 535's with automatic boxes for a really good price each, but the advert's not very good so it has made me suspicious so im checking everything out before i make contact. I know it probably exists but there is little to no help online regarding the E34's, and i have seen info linking the later 535s with the manual gearbox only. So to make a long story short, is this correct, could the 1995 535 be an auto? I just wanna be certain.
Also the infamous question, what should I look for when viewing the car? Like i know the generic things, but what issues do the E34's have? Rust in particular areas etc?
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
P.s Sorry for the life story.
