It'll have a more powerful inline 6 than the 525 (over 200hp versus 184hp), yet offers all of the same smoothness & reliability benfits. There was a guy on this forum who back in late 2004 who bought a Sport Package-equipped 535i as I've described above, with about 110K on it for about $3500.
But good used E34's aren't exactly on every street corner, and the 525 was the only I-6 5-er in 1995. So if you're really enamored of the 525 you've discovered, I HIGHLY reccommend you pay the price to get it checked out by a competent BMW mechanic, BEFORE you buy it. Regardless of your choice, you'll still need to have a couple thousand $ you can put into it over the coming year or so to get everything sorted out on it.
