1986 E28 BMW M535i.
Top of the line for the second generation of 5-series - the E28 series produced from 1981 to 1988. This being an M-model with the 3.5Litre straight 6, was introduced halfway through that production run, in 1985.
Modern bits like the ETC/toll machine and motorized LCD headunit cant help but look ridiculously out of place; but It just shows that this was likely someones daily drive - and that's more than cool enough in itself.
Early days for one of the worlds best sports sedans. I love the E28, but have more than a little time for the E34 and E39 that followed!
Simple, solid, luxury sports sedans. Although gaining complexity with every new model, it is still in essence built on the same basic formula today.
