Offered for an appreciating new owner is this rare classic 1987 BMW 535is 5 speed!
Finished in black on black, his 99.9% rust-free E28-chassis sedan shows about 228,000 miles on its now NON-working odometer with actual mileage closer to 250k.

PLEASE CALL650-350-8828 FOR QUESTIONS AND/OR IN-PERSON MECHANICAL INSPECTIONS.
THE BODY AND TRIM
The exterior of this 535is is in FAIR, ar from perfect concourse condition overall. It is though close to 100% perfectly rust-free with a fairly glossy paint finish AND a host of imperfections like two dented and scraped passenger side doors, ome paint fading spots on the roof, issing rubber strips on the front bumper, issing driver side door lock and fog lights along with many nicks, cratches and other cosmetic blemishes on the body. NOTE: I will include a new front bumper along with a box of miscellaneous E28 parts.

THE INTERIOR
The interior of this 5er is in FAIR condition as well. It has the original leather sport seats, orking electric windows, unroof, orn and blinkers with a host of imperfections inside the car including worn and torn front seat leather and weak side bolsters, ash cracks, adio needs code and has loose console, mall tear in sunroof headliner panel, achometer reads low, ights switch is sticky, eat control panel is all busted up and inop, oor panels slightly de-laminating and two missing door handle surrounds, runk tools missing along with a few other things I have probably missed.

THEDRIVING EXPERIENCE
This BMW starts right up and has a quite decent and smooth running engine with good power. The transmission shifts well with no grinding [shifter bushings are worn] and the brakes work well with good pedal feel. The car tracks down the road well with good steering feel and no major suspension clunks. There is a typical light 55 mile per hour steering wheel shimmy that smooths out at higher speeds. [either wheel balancing and/or thrust arm bushings common on these cars]. I just installed a new driveshaft but the rear diff mount should be replaced. This car still has a surprisingly satisfying feel on the open road!
