What's up everybody? Yeah, I was just wondering if anyone else had a QUIRKY 5er like mine. For instance, when I got mine(85 535i) it had a relay that drained the battery dead, radio forgets presets(still does), headrest didn't go up and down, heater blower was rusted or something, factory cassette is wicked EVIL and practically refuses to play tapes unless force is applied, door locks are FRICKEN NUTS and go into unlock/lock cycle, drivers door must be shut in order to lock the car, ABS sensors are rusted(yet ABS works sometimes), trunk button just LOVES to not pop back out, right rear window falls into the door(once), original OBC lost its mind(replaced), new motor was replaced after only 5 years, e-brake must be pulled ALLLL the way back(with extreme force) in order to secure the car and the button was originally not visible(inside the lever), umm, TRX wheels(need I even say more), windows go up at .0000005 mph, I dunno.

CrAZy 85' 535i (with a broken foglight)- whoohoo


This may not be the car for you. Your whine list is all aesily repairable for minimum $$$$ and a basic skill level.

For example, any kind of spray lubricant shot into and around the trunk button solves your problem. You could have fixed this and the window problem in the time it took to pen the email.
