My FIRST BMW was an '86 524TD - I still miss that car! Drove it forever and gave it away with 300K highway miles. Still have the original spare wheel and tire that were never mounted! I've toyed with picking up a '14 535dXdrive but have only had my '13 535xDrive for 10 months and still liking it. It's hard to tell if BMW is really committed to making it with a diesel car in the USA. And their pricing is (IMHO) out of wack!
So, IF you or anyone gets or has an 85-86 524TD and is interested in a "NEW" wheel / tire - my spare was always stored in a clean dry place and except for rolling it into my garage NEVER touched the ground!
My opinions are free - you'll get exactly what you pay for!
Current: 2013- 535xDrive | 1998-Z3 2.8
Past: 2007-530xi | 2001-740i | 1998-740i | 1994-740i | 1986-524TD
