Typical black Teutonic interior.
Needs more power.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You seem to have got a bad one. I've got a Dec 1998 520iSE auto (twin vanos engine-the later one) which has done 101,000 miles up to today Aug 01. It has been absolutely faultless. It still runs as well as the day I bought it. There are no rattles etc.. which I would expect from a car of this mileage.
