I'm aware of a few differences with the later model cars....not a studied list by any means.

- no tilt wheel on the 89
- the aforementioned problem with intrument panel
- different exterior mirrors (92+?) with less wind roar at speed.
- I believe you don't get the "curb mirror" feature in reverse (my 90 5 speed doesn't have it either)

I'm sure there's more, but these are a few of the little diffs that I'm aware of. Merry Christmas!

90 535iM Sharked

: I have found a '89 535i with 120,000 for $7,500 and am very interested in finding out how much this car differs from the '90, '91,'92 &'93 models. I can't really swing the $13-16k for the newer models. I have an '86 535i with 230,000 miles and am getting the feel it is time to move on.

: Any info would be greatly appreciated.

: thanks,
: Mark (Boston)
