Re: Purchasing a 91' 535i

Yeah, I'll admit that the 535 is quick but were still looking at 8-9 second 0-60 sprints. I think we would have trouble out running 325is let alone M3s

Re: '97 528ia ABS Module

The abs light is on, the car will lock up randomly or sometimes the brakes won't work at all. I'll have to talk to the owner again about further symptoms.

Re: '97 528ia ABS Module

From my research all E39s have the same module, or can all be fixed for cheap. I'm really hoping someone can shine more light on this.
