I have this question bugging my mind, what would I have to expect when owning an E28 5 Series? I'm eyeing one that's well-maintained by the previous owner, car's engine was just overhauled.

Is this the mythical 400 euro E28 M5 that you told us about earlier?

Lol my bad for the wrong currency exchange. Truly my fault, sorry. I'm not sure what the original price was, and I'm told that it's actually a 520i.

Miscommunication can be quite a pain in the neck. I apologise for that.

From what I've seen while looking at E28s for sale, hidden rust is a very real possibility.

As said above you should check for rust, because it is an problem with these if they arent well looked after and a suspension too. If it really turns out to be a well-maintained example, then why not. Personally I would take the 518i(bulletproof m10 engine) over the 520i, but the car you are looking for has had an engine overhaul, so that shouldnt be a problem.
