Not a 530, but a 528i 5-speed (wearing its small 15-inch winter wheels). Love this car. I can't believe how well it drives at almost 15 years old with 123k miles. Just had to put in a new battery, as the old one gave up after 10 years. Other than that it's been pretty reliable over the 2 years I've owned it. Looking forward to keeping it for a long time
I do sometimes wish for the 530's extra 35 horses though. I find myself thinking that my car's handling, with just a bit more power, would be perfect.
