2 years of 535d ownership

Recommended Posts

Well 2 years ago today I purchased my e61 535d in pretty much standard set up , was down the mother in-laws over Christmas so took a pic roughly the same spot but 2 years apart, has cost as small fortune but have replaced / upgraded a lot more than the photo shows but you get the idea of how much it's changed

Nice, good info, thanks.

 

I've bought mine (saloon) 4 months ago. So far, only had to replace the battery as it died one morning. It was ten years old, it was the original battery the car left the factory with. I was well surprised and impressed it lasted that long!
