1986 BMW 5-Series

NO RESERVE!!!!Titled at 79k miles! History shows that a garage replaced the odometer back in 2007 which I had no clue. When I purchased the car the title said 79k miles and when I got the title back in my name the title shows 79k miles. I'm not sure why the title didnt go except back in 2007. I purchased the car in 2019. Miles shown in 2007 is 156k miles. It has sat pretty much since then.
The car sat most of its life in a garage. I was told it was a heater garage as well. The guy I got it off of bought all the original owners diesel cars and trucks.The car has all the tools in the trunk and manual with paperwork that has alot of detailed maintenance that was done to the car. I do not know much about the car or diesel engines. I have cleaned it up a bit and replaced the #4 wired injector that is as rare as the car. I spent 3 months trying to find this single injector! The injectors will need cleaned and the #4 could use new wires on it. The car runs and drives. It shifts smoothly in all the gears. The engine does smoke but not from a bad engine. The reason it smokes is because its getting to much fuel or the injectors are clogged. I had a diesel mechanic tell me the fuel pump needs adjusted and that is probably the cause of the smoke.The body is very straight with maybe a few small dents. Only rust on the car is at the bottom of the front fenders at the bottom but that's very minor. All 4 shock towers are mint! The paint could use a little help. A few spots the paint peeled off. I was told many had this issue donto factory paint flaws.The interior is near mint! The dash is cracked but not falling apart. No rips or bad stitching in all the seats. The drivers seat does have a few scratches at the very bottom. The radio works along with all the windows. The power seats do work. I had the drivers side seat working but for some reason it's not getting power. I'm not sure if it's a plug or a fuse. I looked under the seat and it has around 4 electrical motors to power the seat. I'm not sure what the issue is with it but it has to be simple. the passenger rear window does go up and down but something is loose inside the door. The power sunroof works great.I have a few videos of the car. One is a very detailed 22 minute video showing top to bottom to under the front of the car.
In this video I show the manual
If you have any questions please send me a message! I will help you the best I can with any other information I have of this car.The reason I'm selling the car is because I bought it to fix it and flip it. Unfortunately I do not know much about diesel engines so I wasnt able to get it to 100% like I dreamed of. Also I was quoted $90 for a quart of color matched paint for the car to fix the paint flaws. so that's a cheap fix.
I am selling the car as is because of the few flaws it has.Payment will be either PayPal or better yet cash in hand.The buyer is responsible for picking the car up. The car does run and drive but I would not advise driving it being it smokes and I'm unsure how fast it will go until the injector issue is fixed.The engines sell for $1500-2500 and a clean body such as this one goes for $1500-3000 especially with the clean interior.Please watch the videos I posted for a good overall view of the car!
