I thought I would share some photos and a write up I put together about my friends E28 M535i.
I know a lot of you are from the UK and are used to the European bumpers, but it is not some common in the US. Especially one in this nice of condition---it is definitely worth sharing! :deal:
Coming from California after a L.A. customer bought it new, this was one of ‘those cars.’ One of the cars that is worth buying and briskly covering in plastic wrap, so as to protect from a single piece of dust gracing the surface of the paint.

It has a place in BMW history since it is one of just a few M badged vehicles not actually graced with a motorsport pedigree. At a lower cost than the BMW Motorsport tuned cars, was the option of the M535i E28 in Europe only (Later, the E30 3 series also offered an M-tech option in both Europe and the US). The cost of the M535i was more bearable for some than the cost of the also new 286hp M5. It was intended for customers who were interested in luxury and performance with a look that wasn’t quite your ’run of the mill’ sedan.

There's something very appealing about an E28 in White, and they wear the M-Technic kit well too.

Thanks for posting - there aren't too many pristine M535i's left.

I resurrected this M535i in 2005 from destruction, after sorting out the Electrical Gremlins it had and got it running reliably again sold to a Local friend here in So California that restored it,

here's how it looked when I picked it up in 2005....it was just tired but intact....I am glad it's well taken care of now...
