My Ride: ‘08 535Xi Touring 6-sp, ‘85 M635CSi
Default Greetings from new 535 owner!

Hello All!
New member here, introducing myself and my car.

I recently was lucky enough to find another member who was considering selling a nicely maintained and relativity low mileage E61. I had been looking for a new wagon for a few months and after losing out on 2 cars it was a lucky break. Two weeks ago I took possession: a 2008 535Xi Touring with a rare 6-speed.

I reluctantly accepted my asking price for my beloved 2001 325Xi Touring 5-speed...which found a fantastic home ( https://instagram.com/matt_tierney53...d=h13lpandj6vp ) and started getting to know my new E61.

I can't believe how customizable the car is. It took me two weeks to figure out all the function and take a first pass at coding my preferences.

Now with new Sumitomo summer tires mounted(bye bye runflats), new coils and MHD stage 1 tune(after acquiring a dirt cheap Android tablet), I am settling into 5-series Nirvana!

Coming up next....
Window tint
Remove tired clear bra
Brakes and oil
Transmission and differential oil
Fix tailgate glass release gremlin
Fix driver thigh support gear

5series.net already becoming a key resource as I pour over the car. Thank you all in advance for the knowledge and looking forward to contributing!

Really nice car, I like the blue/beige personally myself. I also recently acquired a new to me E61 (try this again). Pictures forthcoming and a little write up
