1985 E28 535i in Houston for sale

Post by JWT »

Selling my E28 in order to make room for another. Open to offers obviously. It is an amazing car. I can assist with shipping if you like, no problem. I am trying to avoid listing on BaT. If you have any questions just PM me please. Thank you.

That's a fine looking car. I would be interested in the following details:

1. Original paint or respray?
2. Leather/color match vs. OE leather. Looks a tad light but photos are often deceiving.
3, Condition of headliner
4. 330K - what engine work has been done?

Thanks,
Mike

Super clean example. We're witnessing the e30 M3 market happening to the e28 market.

Very clean for the miles. The US spec headlights with Euro bumpers mimic the front end appearance of my 1987 Japan spec E28 in intact condition before I had Euro headlights installed for LHD roads. They were not US spec headlights but had the same outward appearance 10' away (glass contours and internals were different). Anyway my point is that this look represents a valid "use case" for Euro body E28's.

Car was originally priced at 30k (5-6 days ago). Monday it was 27,100, now 26,500 (2-09). Originally the ad stated that the seller would list the car on BaT - that part is now gone. Providing these details for reference only.

I guess I should finish the plan to Euro convert my lower-mileage car and list it for at least $40k given its B35 swap...

Wow, good comparable for my zinno over black 1988 535is 5spd with b35 and euro bumpers, Recaros, BBS wheels, etc. It is definitely worth all the $25k I have it insured for.

My car is the January featured picture in this year's mye28 calendars.

Good luck with your sale. This looks like a beautiful specimen even with the mileage.
