PLEASE CALL650-350-8828 FOR QUESTIONS AND/OR IN-PERSON MECHANICAL INSPECTIONS. THE BODY AND TRIMThe exterior of this 535is is in FAIR far from perfect concourse condition overall. It is though close to 100% perfectly rust-free with a fairly glossy paint finish AND a host of imperfections like two dented and scraped passenger side doors some paint fading spots on the roof missing rubber strips on the front bumper missing driver side door lock and fog lights along with many nicks scratches and other cosmetic blemishes on the body. NOTE: I will include a new front bumper along with a box of miscellaneous E28 parts AND keep in mind purchasing the white 535is as a extra car
THE INTERIORThe interior of this 5er is in FAIR condition as well. It has the original leather sport seats working electric windows sunroof horn and blinkers with a host of imperfections inside the car including worn and torn front seat leather and weak side bolsters dash cracks radio needs code and has loose console small tear in sunroof headliner panel tachometer reads low lights switch is sticky seat control panel is all busted up and inop door panels slightly delaminating and two missing door handle surrounds trunk tools missing along with a few other things I have probably missed.
THEDRIVING EXPERIENCEThis BMW starts right up and has a quite decent and smooth running engine with good power. The transmission shifts well with no grinding [shifter bushings are worn] and the brakes work well with good pedal feel. The car tracks down the road well with good steering feel and no major suspension clunks. There is a typical light 55 mile per hour steering wheel shimmy that smooths out at higher speeds. [either wheel balancing and/or thrust arm bushings common on these cars]. I just installed a new driveshaft but the rear diff mount should be replaced. This car still has a surprisingly satisfying feel on the open road!
