Interior Differences

Post by Mike MPD »

Im trying to piece together an incomplete interior (535is) but hoping to confirm a few things.

Other than color, leather vs vinyl, auto vs manual are there any differences in interiors between models? I know a lot of the euro spec cars have manual functions but am I going to run into anything fitting 528e interior stuff to a 535is for example?

between what and what?
a 535is should have sport seats, "sport steering wheel", I believe they all had AC, a 160mph speedo (not sure if the 535i had the same) and not much more.
In particular mine also had (not sure if all is had this) electric seats, bmw sound system, obc

This only interior wise, there are more differences outside as well

is models weren't really much different, especially regarding the interior. Leather, A/C, sport wheel, 160 speedo were all standard in regular 535i models. Sport seats were one of the differences and they will easily bolt up to a 528e body. The front and rear spoilers were the biggest visual difference, most came with LSD but not all. IIRC they had special shocks and maybe a slightly larger sway bar, but stock springs.
