Long article in current issue of Total BMW. Some anomalies but mostly correct.

Looks interesting! Any way those of us on the left side of the pond could get a copy of the article? [-o<

Article says speedo was recalibrated for M635, is this right? It looks the same as any other E28-based six to me, and obviously gets its signal from the diff in the same way.

Really enjoyable read though

Only change in speedo is 280km/h readout and 8000rpm. Oh and also they replaced fuel economy guage with an M badge. Maybe BMW thought its owners were not going to be fussed about fuel use LOL

Thanks for re-posting the article. I was looking for my original scanned pages but seem to have lost them!

FYI Total BMW magazine has gone to the wall.I have the complete run of issues if anyone is interested in buying them. Will need to be collected.

PM sent. I don't know if Photobucket keeps pulling them down, or those that had posted the links to Photobucket deleted them. I have them saved, and can be had for an email. PM me your email address and I'll send them along.

That explains why I haven't been able to buy a copy for the last x months!

Defo favourite BMW mag, in fact I might never have bought my first M535i without Andrew Everett's buying guide back in the day!

What a shame, I don't really get on with the others,
