    Macklyn:
    I have last 6-speed 535xiT built for N. America.
    Looked at 3-er wagon but too small for me; 5-series much bigger (and with 3 kids you'll need that in few years :-) I haul telescopes/camp gear & at 6'2" height (1.87m) can sleep in back. 535 will "keep up"; leaving most cars in dust! Twin turbos (under-rated by BMW at 300 HP (224kW), but develops 330 HP(246kW). Same with torque. 5-er also more comfortable on long trips. Just did 6200 km to Manitoba--v. smooth riding/allows for long-distance hiway runs w/o wearing you out. 29MPG (US) at 80-85 MPH (12 1/4 km/l at 130-135 km/h), constant headwinds! Sounds like car you are looking at cared for, a good sign.
    I change fluids far more than BMW says, as should all who want to keep cars.
    My opinion, shared on Bimmerfest, is the now relatively rare 535xiT will always be easy to re-sell, as there's a dedicated group that really like this "stealth" rocket ship.
    Any questions, let me know, I may be able to answer.

    Cheers, ED
