No disrepect intended, but are you nuts? I had 6 early 510s, and I have had a 533, an M5 and a 535is, (not to mention several 2002s and a 325ix) and none of my 510s felt remotely like ANY of my BMWs!

My all-time favorite car(s) was(were) the early 70's Datsun 510 (had three of them). The balance and feel was very similar to my 535i. Suspension was similar also, but, the 1600cc four was a bit weak.
