I have started an E12 (75-78 530i and 79-81 528i are E12's) homepage, but
it's not very complete yet.
There is a WWW board dedicated to the 528i, which is very similar to your 530i.

We recently purchased an 80 528i in very good cosmetic shape, but
not so great mechanical shape. Since I've totally overwhelmed at work
right now, it's down the street at Beyer Motor Works undergoing a
major amount of work. The most work I've ever had a shop do to a
car I own. Rebuilt driveshaft, shifter bushings, swaybar links, coolant
change, new hoses, engine mounts, tranny mount, fixing sunroof cables,
brakes flushed, new oilpressure sender, cam cover leak fixed, valves
adjusted, new coolant temp switch. Ouch, expensive.
Features on our car, no idea which are options:
- power windows
- leather seats (dark blue)
- wood trim
- power steering
- power brakes
- fog lights
- 5 speed
- Blau am/fm/cassette cd-changer...just kidding
This car has the standard M30 big-6 used in many many BMWs. The biggest
difference is that this car uses the L-Jetronic fuel injection instead
of the Motronic found in newer cars. Just look for guys modifying their
630i/633i/635i 530i/528i/533i/535i 733i/735i cars to get an idea of
what tricks to use with this engine. Norm Grills 6 series FAQ would
be a good place to start, and the various E28 home pages would also be good.
See Ben Liaws links page or my link page for the addresses:
Um, Sam? Could you trim your sig to 4 lines next time? The big 530i is
cool, but it get's old after the first couple of times.
