535's in general do come more loaded than 528's. I won't dispute that. 528's are more an entry level vehicle for people who don't want to pay the kind of money one would pay for a 535. But there are...

Probably better off to have the gaskets replaced. That's normal wear and tear items more or less. If you sell the car or trade it in, you will take a price beating because of the high mileage. I have...

I would remove the broken cover, blow a hair dryer on the headlight for a little while to heat it up and evaporate all the condensation, then replace the cover with a new one.
