1985 BMW 5-Series 535iRuns, rives, tops (the stopping part needs some help) - Black/Cardinal, Cylinder, utomatic Transmission (In 2008 it had $2000 worth of transmission work done) Build Date 11/84. Odometer stopped working shortly after I got it, o my guestimate is 240,000 miles. I drove it maybe 3 or 4 times a week into town 6 miles away and once a month to work about 200 miles round trip. Got it in 2009, rove it until 2012 (when I got a Honda Fit as a gift and gas was $4/gallon, o stopped driving the black beauty). Non Op status since 2013.
Added Info. 2/25/16: Well, learned something I didn't know before. When a vehicle is listed on ebay, hey use a service called "AutoCheck" (part of Experian) that lets you know the history of the vehicle. There was "minor accident or vehicle damage reported" on 2/11/91. It doesn't give any details other than that. That might explain why the nose of the hood has some paint missing and surface rust.
I started working on her about 2010 and replaced the following...
Power Steering Hose
Front Axle Dust Covers (so different than original wheel covers would fit)
Front Brake Rotors & pads
Cold Start Valve
Distributor Oil Gasket
Instrument Cluster (insides)
Front Suspension: Meyle -
Upper Thrust/ Control Arms with 750 Bushing
Lower Thrust/Control Arms – Aluminum
Tie Rods and Ends, enter link, dler Arm
Stabilizer Bar Link (Right and Left)
Rear Suspension –
Drive Axles (Half Shafts) Right and Left
Rear Trailing Arm to Axle Carrier Connecting Link (R & L)
Rear Stabilizing Bar Connecting Link (R & L)
Needs at least the following:
Brake lines under hood replaced (this is the "needs some help" from above)
Struts/Shocks etc. replaced and alignment
Parking brake button is stuck in the depressed position.
Windshield Wiper Blades
