1988 BMW M5

Due to changes in my life I am being forced to sell my BMW M5. I'm sure I'll regret this when I'm older but I'm moving and can't take it with me. This is a very special car, irst generation M5. There were only around 1200 of these originally imported into the US in 1988. My uncle bought this car in 1997 and I got it from him last year in hopes of restoring it. I went out to Chicago and brought this car back here to Denver. Because of where it used to live, t has rust. They salt the roads out there like crazy and this was my uncle's daily driver. The rust is the biggest issue with this car and will require a very skilled body man to tackle it. Fixing the rust is not impossible and it is something that is worth doing. Specks of surface rust and paint bubbles on the leading edge of hood, oth bottoms of front fenders very rusty, drivers rear door corner is rusty, ront of both rockers below front fenders rusty, nd rear bumper is rusty. Door jams are still in great condition. Fortunately, his vehicle still runs and drives as it should, and very well. No major mechanical flaws. Several notable upgrades include Eibach suspension, orbet wheels with Hankook I-Pike snow tires, Schrick cam, nd cat-less exhaust system. I have records of this car dating back for as long as my uncle owned it up until he couldn't be caught spending any more money on it by my aunt. The car was partially restored in 2004 to include a new paint job and new front fenders as well as some replacement driver seat. The driver seat has been vinyl spray painted or something and is an oddly darker tan color. Interior is in otherwise good condition. Headliner doesn't have a single tear. I have a lot of stuff that goes with the car including the original BBS mesh wheels missing one center cap, n original BMW car cover, few spare parts, MW technical manual, MW electrical manual, nd original M series sales brochure. Includes all original versions of the key and the original key tag. I just put a new battery in it and it really runs great! Fun car to drive and very powerful. I love this car and even though it has rust, he doors open and close and seal very well. It's nice and quiet and a great driver. A truly iconic and timeless piece of German technology that deserves a loving refresh!!
