I found a 1987 BMW 535M in the local paper for sale. It only has 69k km's so 42k Miles. I'm wondering what the 535M is. Is it at all related to the M5? Is it a 535i with an M5 aero kit? I have only been able to find sparse info on it through google searches, no actual pics or specs just the odd reference to someone owning one or looking for one.

M cars are just regular series car with tighter suspensions, differant engines/transmissions, body kits and seats/wheels

Oh I do know what M cars are such as M3, M5 and the old and soon to be rereleased M6 but I was curious where the 535M fits in. Being a 5 series is it part 535i, part M5. Is there any relation at all or does it just have an M in the name.

Ok well I found the actual car that was for sale. Turns out it's actual a dealer sale and not a private sale and I have seen the car before. The car definately looks like it's a regular 535i with M body kit and M logo on the back I'm not sure if this was a dealer option or something added on at a later time though. Anyone know?

Did you end up buying the car? I realize that this response is not to timely but what you have here is a German-spec E28 535M (which is why the odometer is in KM). This car is different than the US-spec E28 M5 which was only imported as a 1988 model year and (in my opinion) did not look nearly as nice inside and out. I actually was lucky enough to own an '86 (when I lived in Germany) and am still kicking myself for not bringing it back. It is a sweet car! The only beef was that it burned leaded (yes leaded) gas and had oddball 390mm wheels (which it appears they smartly ditched on this example). These cars did not have DOT approved lights, instruments, side impact supports, 5 mi bumpers, etc but did have the power, handling, tires and (most importantly) brakes to top 150mph! However, the 535M I owned was my first powerful rear drive car (I grew up on A1/A2 VWs) and it taught me some lessons. I subsequently graduated to a US spec E36 M3 which still left me longing for my roomy, zoomy 535M...
