20K Friday – Super Sedan Edition: E28 M5 v. W124 500E – Which Would You Choose?

What’s going on here? Tax returns are still heading out and we’re feeling rich? Well, not so much but it is nice to dream. While normally on Friday we look for the best deals, this duo was too good to pass up. You could argue about who started the super-sedan trend, but there’s no doubt that the Germans perfected it. Two of the most memorable of these are the E28 M5 and W124 500E; blunt instruments that achieve their goals of luxurious speed in very different ways. We’ve covered many M5s recently of different generations, but as I mentioned in the M5 Roundup, while it’s tempting to buy the cheapest M5 you can get your hands on that’s often a poor decision; in many ways, the same could be said about the 500E. So, here are two quite nice examples to choose from – which would be your dream? Let’s start with the M5:

Tuner Tuesday: 1988 BMW 535i Alpina Tribute

About a month ago, I wrote up a 2002 M20 Turbo built by a company called Manofied. Well, the Manofied folks have been at it again, this time with a 535i. They’ve fully built the car in the style of the Alpina B9, replete with plenty of Alpina parts, some Euro bits, and what appears to be a fantastic individual throttle body engine. The downside? As with the 2002, the price for this build is quite high for a non-original car. But before you jump to conclusions, take a look:

1986 BMW 535i

The 535 is quickly becoming one of my favorite cars on the road. The proportions are dead on, it looks perfect on basketweaves, and the engines rival the M20 in terms of “Can’t kill it” quality. They’re also one of the last of the 80s models that is still relatively affordable to pick up for a project, but the incredible reliability also leads to problems: many of the E28s I’ve considered have well over 250K on the clock! That’s why this 1986 model with a dealer-added body kit and wheels is so attractive – it has just a tick over 100,000 miles, representing a relatively virgin e28 by today’s standards.
