1988 BMW 5-Series 535IS description
Offered for an appreciating new owneris this classic 1988 BMW 535i sedan!
Finished in Alpine white over cardinal red leather, this last year of the famed E28 sedan shows just over 184,00 miles on its currently non-working odometer with the actual mileage said to be just under 200k. This 99.9% rust-free 535i sports a great running 182 horsepower 3.5 liter inline six cylinder engine mated to the factory 4 speed automatic transmission with sport and winter modes. Stopping power is provided by four wheel disc brakes with ABS [anti-lock].

[I also have other wheel options available]. This 30 year-old BMW is being sold with clear and clean California title, accident-free Carfax report and current California registration.

THE BODY AND TRIM
The exterior of this car is in quite good 99.9% dry, clean rust-free overall condition.The paint finish sports a very good overall shine. Imperfections include non-working fog lamps, cracked front spoiler, paint finish peeling off the wheels, a small crumpled spot from tire rybbing at opening of each front fender opening anda few expected rock nicks,scuffs scratches and other light cosmetic blemishes one would expect on a 30 year-old vehicle. Overall this is still one very handsome eye-catching classic with a great stance
As I hope is articulated in the photos here, the interior of this 1988 BMW is in quite good very original overall condition with all windows and sunroof working, electric seats functioning [except passenger head rest], working OBC computer, nice original carpets with mats, good uncut door panels and all gauges in excellent working order [except the odometer]. Imperfections inside the car include dash cracks under the hard plastic cover, seat wear and tear, noisy heater blower motor and poor radio recepetion due to inop antenna
THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
This 1988 BMW starts perfectly with excellent running 3.5 liter engine, nice shifting transmission, excellent braking, tight and responsive steering, crisp handling and taut ride. Thirty years later this classic sport sedan still delivers a satisfying driving experience while delivering 24 miles per gallon on the open road.
