Description for BMW 5-Series 1988

NOTE: Half of the final sales price will be used for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. A lot of folks lost everything, and I felt compelled to use the sale of this 'survivor' to help others. No water came close to the car and it is ready to be driven anywhere.

1988 BMW 535 5 Speed

*Purchased as One Owner Car, who had 2 e28M5's. Documented. I purchased in Jan 2017.

*I have personally owned 2 e28’s and an e12, very familiar with these cars.

*All records...Over $40k + since new + all manuals + original invoice
*239k miles.

*no accidents, all original vin tags in place, clean carfax.

My intention was to give this car a ‘rally inspired’ look and to a level where it could be tracked and street driven, and it is excellent at both!! I did some extensive work to bring it back to full potential, and I would not be shocked to see this car go for many more years without major needs. Previous photos are from vinyls I added earlier this year. All have been removed, and no damage to the paint was caused whatsoever. It is now a blank canvas again. Most recent photo is next to the green Bauer TC (not mine!).


*TONS of work this year:
-Every suspension and steering component replaced
-Bilstein HDs with sport springs
-full tune up and all synthetic fluids
-new front & rear rotors, pads, sensors. Stops on a dime but ABS light stays on
-e34 basket weaves with Toyo Proxes
-Corbeau seats, Bav auto rear seat cover, M shifter
-Tag Heuer Dash Clock...interior is VERY nice
-Orignal BMW Radio. Atennna and radio to work, cassette is in-op
-Dinan Chip
-De-Cat with Silencer
-Hood pad, bbs/pfeba bumpers and rockers

*Windows, locks, moonroof, central check system, all exterior lights, wipers, and horn operate perfectly. Cruise control is in-op, climate control is intermittent.

*Car runs extremely cool in Texas heat

*Turn in and acceleration is excellent

*Exterior is very presentable, interior is one of THE best ive seen in a 200k+ mile car

* EXTREMELY rare working K40 radar! Yes, it actually WORKS!!
*Minimal surface rust in rocker/trunk lip
*Rear Spare well delete
*Front Bumper and Original power seats included
*Extra set of 14" turbine wheels with brand new all seasons included
*Tool kit is not included
*One quality respray from new
*Dash is Crack Free!
*has seen 2 Auto x days, 1 track day, and several spirited drives, it is an even match for any aircooled car;)

Willing to deliver personally within 250 miles of Houston, or can arrange shipping.
Feel free to ask additional questions. Most likely the most documented, reliable, and badass E28 at this price, and hoping to help some folks in need!
