FS: *rare* 1986 M535
1 of 1140 produced for the Japanese market, of 7410 LHD models total.I bought it in Vancouver 3 years ago and it is now registered in Ontario. It's a solid, comfortable car with a strong driveline. I used it to commute 90km/day in Vancouver for 2 years. Has been winter garaged and lightly driven since moving to Toronto. At my last oil change the mechanic was in awe of the lack of rust on this car up on the hoist.
Overall, this car is 7.5/10. I drove it from Vancouver to Toronto over 4 days last year and it behaved perfectly as a German sport sedan should, while giving an average of 28 mpg. Fuel economy would have been much higher if speeds were lower. ;)
Polaris silver, with anthracite cloth manual "sport" interior.
"Green" M30B34 engine (3.5L inline 6 cylinder) with tonnes of torque (passed stringent B.C. "aircare").

No, they are German made by ACT. ACT produces similar quality wheels but seem to be far more rare.
