: Looking at a 1990 535is? 250k

Haven't seen other than pics yet...but my main concern is
the longevity and reliability of the 3.5L engine. I have a 1991 525 that
needs a head gasket done and was thinking or a replacement car.
Any opinions would be appreciated.

I do like the 3.5 motor. If well taken car of it should last.

Just ran across a 1992 535, automatic...220k, silver with gray leather. ORIGINAL OWNER, elderly gentleman since new...spent winters in Florida, only spent last winter here in Canada...one small spot of rust on drivers door lip...says needs back brakes....has replaced water pump, front brakes and wiper arm assembly.........$2000.00 obo
Am I wrong to feel more confidant buying from someone like this?
Thanks everyone :-)

Is there much difference between a 1990 and 1992?
