E39 3.5 problems

Does the 535i have the same type of problems as the 540i? Cooling system etc etc.

535i probs

Yeah i think they are almost identical except for the stroke of the crank.

I have a 97 535i and have had all of the usual problems that 540 owners have, cooling system, pcv valve, rocker gaskets, water pump, A/C compressor, Auto gearbox, Cam position sensor etc etc.

Good luck with it......
