Great thread! Amazing the 535iA didn't come with leather as standard.

I would like to buy a cheap E39 540i (6 speed) and fix it to mint condition.

I think you should change the temperature sensor. Even though it is cold in Norway, it can't be -40C in September ;-)

Thank you guys for the compliments.. Yes it's amazing that 535iA didn't come with leather interior as standard, but i think it's more amazing where the first owner didn't ordered the car with leather interiors.. The temperature sensor is already changed.. Old photo :-)
