Really nice car. For what it is worth to anyone. I think the Recardos are a definite plus over the original seats. I dearly love my 85 535i, but If I could have gotten a car with better seats, that would have been huge.

Very reasonable asking price. Should sell fast. Euro bumpers, and it's an 11 instead of the current 10 rating I'd give it. If someone on the board buys it, hope to see it back with the euro conversion.
