Description:

1985 BMW 7-Series Luxury e23 model

This car is very unique and has had plenty of work done to it to make it where it is at today. A very fine OEM plus look has been the goal of this vehicle. Original key in hand. Moving in about two months and cannot bring the vehicle with me.No immediate rush to sell, the vehiclewill be left with relative if price cannot be agreed upon.
Recently serviced with $3,000 in receipts, all fluids flushed and rust prevention was put in place in prone spots. Entire fuel system has been updated with the idle control up to factory spec. Followed by an inspected by BMW certified tech to ensure no further essential componentsneeded attention & noted the strength and condition of the engine.

Original color Burgundrot metalic, painted Black Mica Cherry in bare metal paintwork(every door frame, trunk liner, frame of vehicle: see picture)
Parts from a low mileage 745i turbo car were swapped into the interior/some aesthetic components, dash reads 93,000 miles as it was put in from this vehicle. The accurate mileage is just over 150,000.
Original 3.5L Inline 6 M30 engine with automatic 4speed gearbox including mode control functions.
OEM Euro bumpers front/rear complete with Euro spec headlamps.New upholstered rear seats and front e30 seats. Has electric plug in from original electric seats ready to for original seats if preferred. Leather door cars are in excellent condition. Alcantara/suede trim pieces were done to replace the damaged original wood.
BBS Style 5 17" wheels with two new rear tires.
New KYB struts and Eibach sport lowering springs along with new OEM tie rods, center links.Complete rear subframe has been detailed and reassembled with new bushings and mounts.Posi rear diff with new axles.Newer brake pads front and rear, brake fluids flushed and replaced.Newer windshield and gasket.
Entire fuel system overhaul (pumps, sock, lines, pick up and inline pumps, dipped fuel tank)
New ANSA Catback exhaust with Silverline Tips (not pictured can send at request.
All windows and electronics work as they should except for the onboard trip computer (avg mpg/range/timer functions) are hard to see and speedometer and heat sensor do not work properly. Car will sit or drive for hours without overheating, just a sensor most likely.On-board system checks, lighting and overall majority of electronics work as they should. Horn, windows, sunroof all work properly.Small, minimal cracks seen in dash as it is the original one.
No signs of major rust on this vehicle, spot rust can be seen in some very small paint chips as seen in picture.
Cons:
A small hole in catalytic converter that makes the exhaust sound rough and loud.The headliner installation needs to be completed.I have a headliner from an identicale23 735i that can be used or as a model for the new one, metal pieces included.AC has compression, blows and shows no signs of failure just needs to be converted/upgraded to R-134a to work 100%.Front speakers need to be reconnected to the panels inside the vehicle (speakers pictured)Front driver fender has a visible dent/imperfection (see pictures for greater detail)

Vehicle has been registered/insured for a while and runs and drives as it should.Garage kept always.Recently professionally fully detailed, including a ceramic coating that includes a 5-yr warranty on defects.
Carfax included in pictures, willing to answer questions/send more pictures to serious buyers. 7,500 OBO.
