1990 BMW 5 Series 535i 3.5 from North America
Nice car, but over rated by people
I have replaced the fuel tank, rear brakes, coil springs, lkm module, and various tune up items. Minor rust has been repaired on the bottom of fenders, aroung the fuel door and door sills. Just getting the bugs worked out for my wife to drive.
Interior (navy leather) showing a little chaffing, but in good shape.
The car handles well for a stock vehicle.
The power is nothing to go crazy over, but is OK.
The cabin fit is good. I am 6'4", 280lbs.
The original Arctic Blue paint is like new.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

An m30 engine mated to a slushbox does NOT automotive viagra make.
You'd be far more impressed with a 5 speed example.

I have a 1990 535i with 220,000+ miles on it. It has a 5 speed manual transmission and I love it! Parts can be a bit expensive, but so are all parts for other cars. I replaced the water pump, radiator and battery. The car had 189,000 on it when I bought it. Still looks good after all these years.
