Old School Fun: 1986 BMW 535i E28

I’ve struggled with the decision about buying a depreciated late model (like a modern 2010ish BMW 535i) with manual gearbox or buying an appreciating classic from yesteryear — because the older car will possibly be worth more in a few years, but the modern car will be a faster and more reliable (probably?) ride? I’m sorta leaning towards getting the classic these days. Find this 1986 BMW 535i here on eBay bidding for $4,500 with 5 days to go, located in Price, UT.

From the seller:

Car was a show car years ago there’s no body damage car runs and drives is my daily driver has new rims and tires including spare new windshield  the only problem this car has is the tach and temp gauge isn’t working common for these cars
