^^^^ You certainly do! Another car on a short list of cars that I'll probably regret selling one of these days. :laugh: My favorite color combo as well.

Chris and Mike spent a good chunk of time and money giving this car a new lease on life. Driving it home, I covered the front with a hood bra and painters tape, lest it get a rock chip! It worked.

Well-bought Dave! That's a hell of a car. I'm glad it's staying local (to the forum).

I have a 1985 M535i (euro market car brought in to US from Germany same year it was built) and I'm almost done with making it perfect. I need some help to finish:

The air conditioning condenser has a hole in it and no one stocks the part. Also junk yard hunting with no results. Any suggestions?

I want to add the correct rear spoiler. These are hard to find. What is the model #?

I have a rear M badge purchased through Bav Auto, but it looks like these cars might have had an oversized M back then? The pic in the previous post of the silver car (nice example!) seemed to suggest a little larger ///M, that I'm used to. Just perspective?

Car was pin striped. Keep it or make it look just like the Norev model? :D

Thanks in advance!

Is it a factory a/c car, or does it have the Diavia aftermarket air conditioning? Euro cars often didn't have the factory air conditioning so it was added later.

It's the same spoiler used on the M5 and 535is. You can see the part numbers for the components here: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showpar ... Id=41_0782 I haven't checked but I doubt you can buy them new anymore. They show up in the classified ads here from time to time, here's one: http://www.mye28.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=147959

The ///M wasn't oversized, it was the same thing used on an M5 just without the 5. There's a thread somewhere here on the board that shows the placement of the ///M on the trunk lid if you need the dimensions - you can probably find it with the search function.

Personal preference. :) When I had my M535i restored I left it off.
