Description for BMW 5-Series 1981

THE OVERVIEW
Offered for an appreciating new owneris this collectible classic 1981 BMW 528i 5 SPEED!
Finished in "Arktisblau" metallic over tan leather, this last-year example of the E12 chassis BMW sedan shows 204,800 miles on its working six-digit odometer. Sporting the original blue California license plates, this 99.9% rust-free examples featires an excellent running 2.8 liter fuel-injected inline six cylinder engine mated to the desirable 5 speed manual transission with stopping power provided by four-wheel disc brakes, factory electric sunroof, electric windows, leather seats, BMW mats, 15" mesh alloy wheels with respectable rubber, fog lights and udated cd stereo. It is being sold with clean and clear California title and, for less than the price of the sales tax alone on a new 5 series BMW, this is a great find for the Bimmerphile offered here on ebay with a low reserve!

THE BODY AND TRIM
The exterior of this classic E12 is in 99.9% rust-free "decent driver-quality" condition overall. The side panels and hood have a nice shine to the paint finish whereas the roof and trunk have considerable clear coat failure and dullness. The original bumpers and trim are in quite good condition, the original windshield has a few chips and fogginess aroung the edges, the black-centered wheels show some chipping with the gold finish peeking through and there are various rock nickes, faded and scratched areas along with other light blemishes.

THE INTERIOR
As I hope is articulated in the photos, the interior of this non-smoker 1981 BMW is in fair to good quite original condition overall with ALL gauges, lights, blinkers and horn in excellent working order. Imperfections inside the car include heat cracks on the vinyl dash, two rear windows inoperative, sunroof moves quite slowly, rear panel of passenger seat hanging off, tear in driver seat and non-working a/c or hot heat. Overall, this is still one quite presentable classic cockpit.

THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
This 528i sedan starts easily and runs well with excellent power delivery up to the redline, smooth shifting transmission, tight yet supple ride quality with excellent steering and clutch pedal feel. There is currently a pull under braking which I believe to be a sticky front caliper.Overall this is a beautifully solid driving car that really shines in 5th gear on the open road!
