Finished in handsome Granite Silver this manual 535i Sport really looks the part. The lustrous metallic paintwork is in excellent order with only one or two light blemishes to report. As to be expected with the age and mileage there are a few small chips on close inspection but these have been touched-in and so could easily go unnoticed. All the lights are clear and the Shadowline trim still appears fresh all round.
Being a Sport model this 535i boasts aerodynamic M Technic body styling for a more commanding presence, with deeper front and rear bumpers, side skirts, and a rear spoiler which in this case also features a third brake light. The only other non-standard item to note is the stainless DTM exhaust, which really enhances that intoxicating straight-six rasp.
Black leather upholstery is the perfect complement to the silver-grey paintwork. The comfortable sports seats offer plenty of support on more spirited drives and the leather still retains a lovely matte sheen. Even with the mileage of 118k the deep bolsters show very few signs of wear, which is also true of other commonly worn items like the steering wheel and gear knob. Looking closely the dash and switchgear still feel solid with no marking or damage, and the original cassette player remains in place. Following inspection everything is fully functional.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 3.4-litre M30 straight six sounds magnificent on test through the stainless exhaust system. Coupled with a silken manual box and limited-slip diff the 535i Sport packs plenty of fun with all the practicality of a family saloon. Under the bonnet of this example youll find a remarkably tidy engine bay. Theres no rust to be found and much of the original factory-applied wax is still visible to the metal components. The car has been really well maintained from new, which is not only clear from its condition but also from the stamped service booklet and accompanying paperwork. There are 22 stamps in total with invoices for the most recent maintenance work.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The car sits on its original set of 415mm cross-spoke alloy wheels, all of which remain in great condition, including the spare. They are shod in period metric tyres with some age-related wear to report, but a spare set of alloys is also present with the vehicle. These larger AC Schnitzer wheels are wrapped in quality tyres with plenty of tread remaining and can be fitted in place of the originals upon request. The brakes are in fine fettle and work well on test.
This early 535i Sport was first registered in August 1991. It was supplied new by Cooper BMW in Cobham who went on to service the car twelve consecutive times following on from the Running-in Inspection they also carried out at 1,017 miles. Since 2003 the maintenance has been carried out by a few different garages but the mileage between services has never exceeded 7k. The most recent Inspection II was done just 2k miles ago but a fresh oil service will be carried out upon sale for the new keepers piece of mind.
