FS: *rare* 1986 M535

1 of 1140 produced for the Japanese market, of 7410 LHD models total.I bought it in Vancouver 3 years ago and it is now registered in Ontario. It's a solid, comfortable car with a strong driveline. I used it to commute 90km/day in Vancouver for 2 years. Has been winter garaged and lightly driven since moving to Toronto. At my last oil change the mechanic was in awe of the lack of rust on this car up on the hoist.

Overall, this car is 7.5/10. I drove it from Vancouver to Toronto over 4 days last year and it behaved perfectly as a German sport sedan should, while giving an average of 28 mpg. Fuel economy would have been much higher if speeds were lower.

WBADC890200715238
Polaris silver, with anthracite cloth manual "sport" interior.
160k KM
"Green" M30B34 engine (3.5L inline 6 cylinder) with tonnes of torque (passed stringent B.C. "aircare").
3.46 LSD
1-2-3 Sport Auto (early manumatic)
Very rare Brown tinted factory glass
Uber rare factory Moon Roof
M-Tech package (steering wheel, seat badges, areo-kit*)
* All tow cover and jack point covers are still attached... rare!
http://www.bmwmregistry.com/model_faq.php?id=6

BAD:
a few quarter size areas where clear-coat if failing. Paint is 7/10.
a touch of rust (less than a dime) on top of rear tailight.
a bit of rust (inhibited) on the moon-roof lifting arms.
Shocks on both seats fronts are gone and on the diver's seat one bolster is detached and a few tears (patched).
one fog light broken
2" crack on dash

GOOD (partial list from last 3 years):
Besides the above items, the car is bone dry. Looks amazing up on a hoist.
vents are tight, adjustable dash vent
new drive shaft
new exhaust (cat back)
Bilstein Sports on all 4 corners
new headgasket
Mustang injectors
CSV
steering pump
water pump
Front wheel bearings
Fuse box
glove box iPod controller / charger
Rear sub- frame mounts and pitman dog-bones
Heater valve

Also available for sale separately (or packaged in):
10:1 "dirty" M30b34
17" x 8.5" et11 ACT multi-piece "basketweave" wheels
These will work perfectly on my future projects so no ass-gabbing please.

$8500.

Interior:
*I've replaced the failing Anthracite cloth door panels with nice perforated black vinyl ones, which IMHO, matches better.

The diver's seat cloth has deteriorated since this photo...

Nearly all there except for the clutch. I have some hard to source bits and hoses that are need for the high compression engine as well as the proper ECU. The engine also has an older set of headers attached... not pretty but serviceable. Should be able to mate up with your down-pipe with a little work.

No, they are German made by ACT. ACT produces similar quality wheels but seem to be far more rare.
