yeah, i know it's a 5 series. i dig the older body styles of the 3 and 5 series from this era. (not so much on the 6 & 7's, though. -maybe shoulda made that point a little clearer...)
worked with a guy who had a 'grey market' german spec 528. *stupid* fast. (his words, not mine) he sold it, then tried to buy it back a few years later becasue he missed it.
good luck with your next bmw purchase.
