This car is very well built and sorted it is fast and very tight. It can keep up with modern cars. And handles like a Porsche. It has immediate torque @ 3,200 rpms due to the cam gear and miller chip.
M5 s were a head of there times! I am selling this car and sold my Porsche GT3 to concentrate on restoring my very very Rare original 1986 M5 Euro. If you have driven a US E28 M5 you will find this car exhilarating its lighter more power and with all the upgrades it feels like it has rack and pinion steering.
If this were and (original) Euro M5 in this condition it would sell for $65,000- $80,000 in Europe.
Note: This is not an original M5. And I have spent a many many hours to replicate it to look, drive and sound like one.

Original Factory Euro headers powder coated, This car has never had a spec of rust and is the cleanest E28 Chassis I have seen. It has been in California since new. Also has new front wheel bearings, Rebuilt steering pump, M5 Throttle cable, Rebuilt Throttle bodies, all new engine hoses, Original 535i engine brackets removed and areas painted, Factory original Rear foam spoiler (very Rare) and fender lips.All parts came from an 1985 M635CSI with only 92,000 original miles. The transmission is the original that came on the 1985 535I and shifts smoothly through all gears.
Note: If you have your own engine to put in the car, I am willing to sell the car without this engine. Or if you prefer a M30 euro High CompI have one that can be built and installed. My cost on this car without labor is $32,000.00
Good luck with bidding I am sure it will go to a good home.
