Do an archive search on 535 and you will find a lot info. Some of the basics are: price depends on condition and on whether or not is has all its service records. Also it helps to have it looked at by an independent BMW garage. (my local garage charges $40 for this) Common problems:

The instrument cluster and its lights
Front bushings wear out, should be replaced
Radiator lasts about 100k

I bought my 89 535i 3 months ago for 7k with 140k on the odo. What sold me was every Type I and Type II service was completed and documented.

Also, go to and follow links to the auto classifieds, at least you will be able to see what other people are ASKING for their 535.

Happy hunting,
