I am currently selling my 1985 528e, which has a gold exterior and black interior. The car drives great and does not leak any fluids. While the car has over 250,000 miles, it has been repainted, all news suspensions parts, interior all redone and a '88 super Eta engine and tans swap that has a little over 100,000 miles.

Some words we never saw on this forum a few years ago: "Good looking Bronzit".

Thanks for the compliments. Was thinking of putting it on BAT if i don't get any bites here.

Nice car, Black interior makes a huge difference with a Bronzit car. Lots of work and money went into a car that probably otherwise wouldn't have gotten it. I'd suggest attacking those minor needs though with what still amounts to a strong asking price on a 528e. As nice as the car is, the odometer reading will keep it out of the money on BaT, sadly.

Was this car previously on auto hunter/classic.com out of Arizona? Maybe end of last year/early this year?

This is indeed the car. Originally a California car, then more recently an Arizona car.
