    Recently acquired a nice 1987 535. One key fob has a small light, but the battery is missing and I haven't found out which battery it takes. Any suggestions? Have confirmed that the slot is too small for the common "2032" watch battery.

    Many thanks.

    Thanks John, yes I found my28.com, have been all over it, but havn't registered yet. I have attached a photo, I am very pleased with the car. It was a one owner 1986 528e southern CA car, with 102K miles. Very well maintained, have all service records, window sticker, etc. I flew to Orange County and drove it back to Colorado last week, getting 32 mpg in doing so. The feedback and feel of the drive is excelelnt. I have owned a special E34 M5, the way the car communicates to the driver reminds me of that car. The only obvioius issue the car has now is that the drivers headrest is stuck in the up position, have the Bentleys manual on the way....
