Description:

1987 BMW 5-Series

This BMW was imported by a friend of ours from overseas and since we processed the importation documents as well as the title work, it is being sold under the name of our company. This is a very close clone of an M5. In fact, it has the S38 M5 engine as well as a dogleg manual 5-speed transmission, M-Sport seats, sport Bilstein suspension and a complete Euro-spec M5 body kit. The only thing that gives it away is the BMW plaque in the engine bay that says 525iA. The good: The S38 motor feels strong and sounds great. According to the person that did the swap, it has less than 100k miles on it; same with the transmission. The clutch feels nice and strong; the suspension is also tight. The body is nice and straight although the car has been repainted at some point. The quality of the paint is good, and the car has very few imperfections on the body, but there are a couple of small flaws (see photos). The Euro bumpers and headlights make the car look great. The interior is very nice. The seats, dash, door panels and the headliner are clean and free of major flaws. The car has a complete new exhaust with a Borla muffler. It is loud and sounds mean. The car is rust free. It spent all its life in a hot climate. The instrument cluster was swapped from a US car and it works fine with all gauges and control lights. The bad: Although the previous owner was apparently happy with the conversion and the motor swap, in my opinion the work was not quite complete in some areas. There are some sensors that are not connected (oil level, washer fluid, coolant, etc), the AC was not connected either. Although the car runs and drives, under the hood looks a bit chaotic. A few light bulbs are burned. Some will consider this car a turnkey and some will say it needs more work. The car will be sold with a clean Florida title and it can be registered in most states without problems. If you live in CA, please check your state pollution requirements.
