1984 BMW 5-Series

After roughly two years of ownership and daily driver duties, s well as much thought, t is time I offer my Euro E28 to fellow enthusiasts. I had my eyes on this particular car for about two years before I had the opportunity to purchase it locally. I purchased this car from John Barlow, ollector and organizer of the Socal Vintage BMW group when he started downsizing his collection. Ever since, his thing has been nothing short of an amazing driver, ooker and collector car all at the same time. I have decided to also downsize, n order to spend more time and alas money on my E30 M3. I have listed some basic info as well as modifications and maintenance below.

Most of the maintenance and modifications listed above were done in my ownership, ith the engine reseal, wap and maintenance performed locally by Matt and Shant at Bimmerheads. The car was first imported through Canada into Washington under the 25 year law. Being an early euro car, here is minor rust on the inside of the driver's door by the top corner of the door, s well as the inside of the sunroof panel. Rust is confined to those areas only and hasn't gotten worse since moving to CA. I have photos to send to any interested parties through contact info. Given the age of the vehicle itself, hings like notorious cracking of the E28 dashboard, ear on the driver's bolster and missing tools from the toolkit are all things worth noting. This past summer I also had all of the windows tinted to save me from the CA heat with no A/C, resh tint that is easily removable.I am not a collector, ather an enthusiast who also owns an E30 M3 which is begging for attention. With the limited space, nd time, am motivated to sell the E28 as I plan out my build on the E30 M3.
This E28 has been in good hands throughout its ownership with the past three owners being enthusiasts who looked after the car. Electronics, lthough limited, ll work and function as they should. With prices of these older German cars quickly appreciating, am only asking what I have invested into it. Paint and interior, till shine and clean up really well as noted in the photos. Please keep in mind that this is a VERY rare car, nd probably the only Alpine White on Pine Green E28 in the states.
Please only contact me if you are very serious, n the market, nd ready to buy this example.
