1988 BMW 5-Series 528E
Offered for an appreciating new ownerat NO RESERVE is this cool classic 1988 BMW 528e sedan!
Finished in rare "Nerzbraun" metallic over tan leather, this 99.99% rust-free always California car has been driven just over 198,000 miles since new. The six-digit odometer recently stopped working and the car was just revived from a five-year garage slumber here in the San Francisco bay area. This last-year specimen of the E28 chassis sedan sports BOTH original California "sunset" license plates, a decent running 2.7 liter inline six cylinder "Eta" engine mated to the recently rebuilt factory 4 speed automatic transmission with stopping power provided by four wheel disc brakes with ABS, electric windows and sunroof, electric leather seats with custom covers, cruise control, updated cd stereo, period-correct gold BBS 14" wheels with decent rubber and COLD air conditioning.
Offered here atNO RESERVE this is a fabulous find, for about the cost of JUST A FEW MONTHLY PAYMENTS ON A NEW 5ER!
THE BODY AND TRIM
This exterior of this 1988 528e is is good 99.99% rust-free condition overall. Much of the paint has a nice shine BUT the top roof and hood surfaces are worn away. All of the trim and original glass is intact. There are various nicks, scratches, faded areas, clearcoat failure and other light cosmetic blemishes on this very dry, virtually 100% rust-free California gem
As I hope is articulated in the photos, the interior of this 30 year-old BMW is in decent quite original condition overall. The carpet, door panels and headliner are all in good original condition, the A/C blows ice cold, the electric sunroof works well as do three of the four electric windows, the cd stereo and horn, blinkers, lights and gauges. Imperfections inside this car include heat cracks on the dash, worn leather under the seat covers and other wear and tear areas. NOTE: As shown in the photos, I have an extra mint condition passenger seat available for the new owner at no additional cost. Overall this is still one cool classic BMW cockpit!
THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
This 1988 528e starts easily with decent running engine with all of its power, smooth shifting transmission, very smooth power steering and still solid suspension. A few items of note include worn camshaft, intermittent mushy brake pedal and general component wear on this bargain-priced entry level classic!
