    Comfort seats in an M Sport?

    My f11 M Sport has comforts along with oscillating (massaging) bases and ventilation (air cooled). C.

    New to E34

    Congrats. Is it Manual or Auto and what rims is it running, they look like Hartge's...? C.

    E39 M5 on Collecting Cars.

    It's Caramel (e39 M5 Specific) which is very different, a much richer colour and works well with the Black Dash, Door Cards etc. Admittedly not most peoples first choice on a lighter coloured car, however it certainly makes it stand out from the standard fayre seen on Silverstone cars. All IMO of course. C.

    E39 M5 on Collecting Cars.

    Highly unusual seeing Caramel Heritage Leather against Silverstone... doesn't look too bad IMO. Overall it looks a nice car, low miles but a shame they never facelifted the rear lights as they did with the fronts. C.

    I’m back in a 5!

    Great purchase and loving that mocha interior. I have Comfort Seats too with added cool ventilation and oscillating (massage) function. They're a vast improvement over standard Sports Seats. C.

    F11 Again or move on to a G31?

    I was in this same position just over a year ago and decided on a late F11 after driving both the petrol F11 535i and the petrol G31 540i. The later car did feel more modern and slightly lighter on its feet, however I hated the dash mounted tablet infotainment, 20" wheels and preferred the more BMW'esque look of the earlier car. A well optioned 6 Cylinder F11 is hard to beat as an allrounder. C.

    I've got a late 66 Plate 535i F11 (Petrol) with a spec to die for that i'm thinking of selling if you're interested... C.

    E34 530i manual

    Good e34's are hard to come by and that looks like a nice example. Bombproof M30 and Manual too. C.

    Just a feeler: F11 535i sport touring - ideally manual!!

    Are you still looking? I have a low mileage late car with mega spec. Due to arrival of a new hound, family staycations etc. i'm thinking of going down the VW Transporter route. C.

    E39 M5

    Just the usual Hexagon trick in trying to push market prices up. They did the same with the Z8 and actually succeeded. Nice low miles late car which will no doubt find a buyer, eventually... C.

    New car purchased today!!!

    The car has only done 32k miles so unless there is evidence of any leak then i'd leave alone. Gearbox would probably benefit from a service at 100k miles or ten years old, whichever comes first. C.

    ttrw2's 2001 Le Mans Blue M5

    A static plate is what you need. I have one on one of my other cars and was wary of it coming off at motorway speeds, however it's surpassed that speed and more. Recommended. Show Plate | Static Plates Awesome work as usual ttrw2. C.

    New car purchased today!!!

    Same here albeit in 535i Petrol. A couple of miles or so and the gearbox is back to its almost seamless shifts. C.

    I genuinely think you're going to pay a premium for a 535i Touring in petrol guise, they're few and far between so there will only ever be a handful to compare and view. It's a lottery with spec. I'd list your absolute must have's and anything else will be a bonus. Search for a Diesel and and you can pretty much choose your colour, spec and engine size. C.

    My 540ix Bluestone Build

    Top job, liking them. BMW's recent fad with flat faced diamond cut & lacquered wheels really let their cars down IMO. C.

    Driving with two key fobs

    Shouldn't be an issue. I drove my car back from the Dealers with two keys in the car, has Comfort Access too. When anyone buys a new or used BMW with two or more keys, they are going to drive home with them in the car! C.

    Rather light on options... however a nice late 535i Petrol is a great car. C.
