Hi guys,

I have enjoyed the E39 530i (M-sport, fully optioned), the best car in the world in my opinion. The car had been sitting in the driveway for 2 yrs, as I was away. And to a point where the computer got fried, or doesn't work and I had to sell it for $1,000. :cry:

Now, looking to get a 2012+ 535i. My budget is around $25,000 (plus or minus a couple of grand depending on the year/mileage/options). Looking for a car with 30K miles (plus or minus a few grands). Options looking for - M sport pkg, Navigation, Rear camera, Paddle shifters (would be nice, not necessary), side/rear shades (would be nice, not necessary).

Questions: 1. Are my expectations realistic and doable?
2. What are the differences in 2012, 2013, 2014 (535i) models? Technology, features/options, etc?
3. What are the traditional issues with these cars?

Thanks for much guys...
