FS: 1987 535isa for sale in New York (3.5L swap)

Post by Riskybiz86 »

The sad day has come when I now have to sell my much loved E28, "Charlie." With our first baby girl having just arrived, the wife has insisted that we can't just have 2 classic cars as our only vehicles (my e30 and e28), and need a modern family car. I volunteered to sell my e30 so we could just further upgrade and use the e28 as our daily, but that go vetoed. Soooo I've listed E28 for sale... I've outlined in quick fashion the many repairs, upgrades and included parts below for easy viewing.

Current sale listing: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/it ... 086765288/

If anyone has any questions either about the sale or about how I've done any of the below feel free to ask. This community has been so helpful over my years of ownership in finding parts, solving the seemingly un-solveable (like how to wire m1.3 up with a electronic auto trans) and providing support. I'm happy to give back whatever I can.

As for why it's on BaT, well that's because I'm hoping to sell it for enough to purchase a more modern "family friendly" car with the proceeds, and if you've seen used car prices now, you know it's not great (ideally I want something that's not a boring minivan or SUV but we'll see).

Many OEM+ modifications have been made to Charlie and I've got a few nice rare or custom spare parts also (since I was never planning on selling this car). The categories are listed below:

Exterior
- Full euro bumper conversion
- Euro headlight conversion
- LED headlight and high beam bulb conversion
- Full Zender aero body kit (font spoiler, side skirts, rear valance)
- Paint resprayed in Mystic Blue Metallic (slightly less dark blue/purple looking - it's the e46 blue color that was on the 1st car I ever owned)
- Ceramic window tinting
- Rear windshield louvers installed (from CAtuned)

Interior
- Original E28 M5 interior parts include door cards, drivers side kick panel, center console and glove box (sourced from this forum!)
- Sport interior professionally dyed to match M5 natur color components and all seats foam redone
- Rear seat headrests installed
- Suspended black headliner professionally installed
- Dash cover installed
- All speakers replaced with upgraded pioneer speakers, including a amp and removable subwoofer in trunk
- new blaupunkt radio with aux connector
- keyless entry system installed and functioning (I was really trying to get this to pass as a modern daily driver here)
- new BMW front seat belt receivers
- heating seats

Wheels/suspension
- Style 88 16in wheels, and freshly refurbished Borbet T wheels included with sale
- Brake upgrade to 750i calipers/rotors front and 540i rear (got the last pair for Ireland Engineering)
- Suspension techniques upgraded sway bars (22mm/16mm adjustable)
- Ireland engineering sport springs
- Front and rear strut brace
- limited slip differential

Engine
- Installed M30B35 engine (head professionally refurbished)
- Motronic 1.3 upgrade
- KAmotors carbon fiber air intake
- all silicone cooling hoses from ireland engineering

Spare Parts
- extra front chrome euro bumper
- auto driveshaft with serviceable U-joints
- heater blower motor (new in box)
- black ceramic coated m30b35 intake manifold
- front drivers side spare window regulator
- spare ac compressor
- sanden compressor conversion ac brackets (from this forum)
- reinforced sway bar brackets (from this forum)
- spare auto transmission

Yes, but I'm not parting out the car. I do have spare parts though (ecu, tcu, euro metal front bumper etc...)

What are you looking for?

Hey, do you per chance have an M5 front ashtray for sale? Need one with the tan leather wrap.
Thanks either way
