The owner should send them some better pictures for the money they're asking! I wonder what their cut is for consignment?
I tend to not trust "dealerships" such as this who deal exclusively in consignments. Doesn't mean a blind squirrel can't find a nut every once in a while. The 2002 they list with the upside-down center and incorrect side grilles is simply laughable.

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.
Is it missing a kick panel?

A great description can be found here on Bring A Trailer.
https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1986-bmw-528e-10/
I purchased it from the owner that bought it off of Bring A Trailer. I have added the difference in miles except roughly 1,000 that were put on by that owner. Other than that, nothing else has changed with the car except it does need rotors shaved or replaced on the fronts. I have driven this car in multiple long trips and it drives fantastic and cruise controls still functions perfectly. I'm only selling because I had to get another car for work that requires lots of driving and I didn't want to put those miles on this beauty.
Surprise a loved one this holiday season with an amazing vintage machine that will bring a smile to their face guaranteed.
I did have this listed previously but failed to respond to many texts and calls inquiring about it but promise to respond quickly this time around. Price has been lowered as well, so jump on it quick. I'll even leave the original owners mixed cassette taps in the car for your cruising pleasure.

Hard to believe somebody hasn't snapped this up. Please don't reply "if only it were closer to me".

Bobby is fairly famous for his BMW salvage yard near Road Atlanta. He's an interesting guy, too.

Hate to be bringing up an out-of-date thread but I figured I can give input on this car.

Not mentioned in the ad is that there is rust on the trunk lip, A-pillar near the bottom corners of the windshield, sunroof area, drainage holes on the doors. Think the driver's seat may be reupholstered as well, though with vinyl. Just from that quick inspection (didn't have further of a reason to lift it and inspect underneath), didn't figure it to be worth the asking price.

Seller sounded rather rude/disgruntled as well.
