Actually, looks like it has an M30B35 in it???
1988 BMW 6 Series 635CSi - Provo, UT - $5,200

This car is a beauty, really clean, fun and fast. Although it has high miles, it runs really well, has no issues mechanical. There are a few minor things I made note of.
Shifter nob comes loose, just needs new hardware, doesn’t keep the car from shifting. Rear glove box needs to be re-glued. Passenger seat belt receiver is busted. Front emblem is missing. Antenna is missing. Dash has some cracking.
It’s a great car that would make an amazing weekend driver for the money. Feel free to come test drive it.

It's a US car with euro bumpers. And poorly done at that. Note white thingies in front.

Tough crowd but valid point... I was impressed they filled the rear side light wire holes. Now that you mention it, those white thingies in front stick out terribly! I melted mine off... Looks like an actual euro front valance?

And the fuel tank doesn't show the liters that a euro car has.

The price is quite high for the mileage but overall it looks like it might be a pretty nice car. It probably deserves a much presentation than a few quick photos taken behind the house on a dismal rainy day in Portland.

EDIT: Sorry for my triple posts. The forum was evidently going through one of its hiccups when I was trying to post.

That offerup leaves a lot to be desired. I know there are a lot of hungry E28 "owners-to-be" that might jump at that but I think most of us would pass based on the lack of effort put into the listing.

In my experience, sometimes the ads that provide sparse information turn out to be the best buys. Most shoppers pass them up because they want all the details handed to them in a quick read. But those who are willing to put in a little more effort and probe deeper have the potential to find some real gems that others have passed up.

Just sayin’.

After owning something like 40-50 cars in my lifetime, I can't honestly say it describes EVERY car I've ever bought; the first few were my personal learning curve. But it pretty accurately describes the ones that turned out to be exceptional in one way or another.

315k miles, white, 535is automatic for $10k. Seems optimistic and with shitty pictures, too.

88 and 89 635csi came with a b35 and its unique because the mounting bosses on the block line up with e23/e24/e28 mounts without adapters.

535is, $17,500 but it looks pretty good in the pictures. http://www.significantcars.com/cars/1987bmw/

Edit: the ad says it has a dash cap, and perhaps coincidentally there's only one photo that shows just a small portion of the dashboard.
