1990 BMW 5 Series 535i from North America
It's a Hoot! Cheap thrills
Nothing so far.
Bought it for $2,000 Canadian. That's $1,620 U.S.
I've driven it 10,000 km and so far it's been a great experience.
I enjoy driving it more than our new 2007 Camry. When I sit at at a light it rumbles. I don't know, it just feels really good, with the leather steering wheel, comfortable seats. It sits low and the dash is low too. I feel cool driving it!
It's the kind of car that is really hard driving slowly. I like the sound of the inline six, except at low speed I hear the cooling fan too much. The transmission is sluggish except when you put it in third, then it shifts quicker. The gas mileage is pretty bad. Try to get the five speed if you can.
The stereo is great, better than most new cars.
The doors feel about twice as heavy as most cars, which means they are strong in case of an accident.
So far a good buy. It was a risk buying one. It could have been a nightmare.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
