I'm a new member here after buying a "Mint" 1986 535is:
-not a crack in the leather
-all power options work (except antenna doesn't retract)
-very little rust
-It even has all tools and spare bulbs/fuses intact
-glove box flashlight is there butdoesn't work (will order new one)!
- it drives and rides like new....not a rattle at all!
I absolutely love this car! I have been bitten by the BMW bug for sure!
