SOLD - 1984 533i

Post by Blanche84 »

Thank you for your interest and kind comments, including your private messages. We are having a difficult time parting with her, but we think she is going to a good home.

VIN: WBADB7406E1190920
Mileage: ~206,000 (odometer and trip odometer work; have always worked)
Exterior Color: Alpine White
Interior: Black Leather
Location: Tucson, AZ

Classic 1984 533i in excellent condition inside and out with no modifications. Original non-smoking owner. M30B32 engine, manual 5-speed, limited-slip differential. Working power windows, power door locks, on-board computer, cruise control, dual remote side mirrors, overhead consolette, power radio antenna, and electric sun roof. Original factory tool kit.

Car is completely stock. Steering is true. Power steering is leak-free. No odd sounds. Car always starts immediately. No smoke. Idle is smooth. Shifting is smooth and precise....no clunks, thumps, or any other sounds.

In 2010, our BMW-certified mechanic went through the entire car and replaced belts, seals, gaskets, clutch, master cylinder/slave cylinder, muffler, fuel pressure regulator, throttle switch, thermostat, etc.

Replaced original radio with Panasonic AM-FM w/CD player. Works fine. OEM (from BMW Germany) dash replacement in 2010 is crack-free. New OEM A/C compressor kit installed in 2017; we recharged with R-12 refrigerant in March 2021. Just replaced battery (Interstate) and in March 2021 added all new Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 tires (205/55ZR16 94Y XL). BMW Style 61 wheels in great condition. Installed new carpet on shelf in back window and replaced all deteriorating trim around the doors and windows in February 2010. Oil changed every 5,000 miles (Valvoline VR1 20W-50).

Always garaged. Rust-free except tiny bit under where the battery sits. Meticulously maintained by BMW-certified technicians. Detailed summary of service records. Includes manuals, original window sticker, original brochure, and copy of invoice.

The trunk locks/unlocks manually, not automatically. Hood seal needs replacement. Seals on right-rear and left-rear passenger doors should be replaced. They do not leak. Tiny leak (over several years) from rear differential. Authorized BMW mechanic said it was not a problem, which was reconfirmed just a couple of weeks ago. Oil-service inspection indicator cannot be reset. The brake lining indicator lights occasionally, but the brakes have been checked and are fine.

We custom-ordered from Ralph Schomp Imports, Inc. in October 1983, and the car was delivered to us on December 26, 1983. Car lived in Denver only about 3 years with remainder in San Mateo, CA and Tucson, AZ. Used as daily driver but only commuted with the car for 7 years in CA, mostly on Highway #280 in the late 80s and early 90s when traffic on #280 was light.

Also includes Thule bicycle rack and an MCover car cover, both in excellent condition.

Finally, we do not want to sell this car, but in January/February 2022, we will have 5 cars, which is too many for us to drive and care for properly.

$13,600. Willing to negotiate.

I love these 1-owner/1-family owned cars that have been treated well and conscientiously maintained throughout the decades. They're the ones to look out for. Alas, no more room here.
