1987 BMW 5-Series 535is

For sale is my 1987 535is, t's a 5 speed with 204k miles Alpine White in color with Cardinal Red leather. The car is great condition considering the fact that it is 27 years old. It was owned by the same family since new (until I acquired it) and was always maintained with the utmost care. I have service records dating back to 1987 when the car was new as well as all the books and manuals.

Things that may need attention:
The suspension is tired and could really benefit from a refresh. (Mainly the rear shocks as they are a bit bouncy when going over large bumps)The Sunroof sticks sometimes and won't open, have not looked into it yet but it could be an easy fix.I have the sheet metal needed to repair the rust in the trunk and it will be included in the sale.
All in all its a great example of an original unmolested 535is. These e28's are getting harder and harder to find in nice shape especially the 535is. The car just needs a little TLC and it could be almost perfect. I have tried to describe the car to the best of my abilities, he car is not perfect but still a great example. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
