: : : 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!

: : : : 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,

: : don't forget that there are no airbags in the 89.
