BMW E28 535is Euro'd-Florida car, low km, records, enthusiast owned, never seen salt

Hate to do this.

If you plan on driving it in the winter, then please stop reading.
All test drives will be done by me.

Cleanest e28 you will find.

Enthusiast owned almost all its life. NEVER winter driven, stored always-and has still been rustproofed yearly ever since it was imported to canada. Previous owner was a bmwcca member who was a bimmer fanatic. Owner before that was a bmw mechanic. Oil changed regularly, amsoil 5w40 synthetic and all other fluids changed yearly after storage. Service records and papers from 1987.

I purchased the car about 7 months ago and planned on keeping it for the rest of my life.
For years I was looking all over canada and parts of the states for a lachsillber metallic on cardinal red e28 and this was the cleanest one I could find, and now I unfortunately have to sell it.

Original crack free dashboard! No rips in the seats or bolsters! Mint headliner. Car washed weekly and waxed monthly

No accidents. Clean history

The m30b34 is very smooth and pulls like a train, super smooth very healthy and runs at a perfect 180 degrees. No leaks, doesn't burn any oil
Only 203,000km on both car and body. Everything original...body panels, engine, tranny

New oem parts and things that have been done since I've owned it:
-valve adjustment
-oil and filter amsoil 5w40 synthetic
-air filter
-brake fluid
-diff fluid
-transmission fluid amsoil
-coolant flush
-alternator
-alternator belt
-power steering belt
-starter
-battery
-fuel pump relay
-main relay
-windshield washer pump
-all fuses
-spark plugs
-plug wires
-cap
-rotor
-powerflex subframe bushings
-dogbones
-center hanger
-u joints lubed
-front brake discs
-brake accumulator
-hydrolic hose
-thermostat and gasket
-all water hoses
-rad hoses
-fan clutch
-expansion tank and cap
-aftermarket exhaust(perfect exhaust note)
-windshield and gasket (lifetime warranty)
-trunk gasket
-door bump stops
-euro seatbelt clips (not installed yet)
-mint euro bumpers
-mint late euro valance
-painted rear valance
-mint euro headlights
-oem bbs style 19 17x8 square no curb rash
-top of the line kenwood deck I forget the model name
-water temp and oil pressure guage
I'm probably forgetting something

Previous owner was a BMWCCA member and did all work to the car on his own. He really babied it. But he passed all service history that he had when he did take it to the shop. All work done at bavarian motors
-water pump
-tie rod assembly
-uca's
-lca's
-some sort of front speakers/forget which

Comes with bunch of other parts and Bentley manual

All oem parts.
That's it. Car has had OCD oil changes done every 3-4000 5w40 amsoil synthetic euro formula.

Yes there are some things that need attention-and the a/c doesn't work(that's normal)
Needs new carpets
Turn signals need to be wired(easy)
Some dings
It has a shimmy at 80- Control arm bushings...and also the passenger side rim is slightly bent, but the car comes with 5 rims so that can be swapped.

Needs nothing to certify. Some nice bilstien sports and sport springs would make it even more fun!

So there it is, the sexiest and best handling sedan ever built. Real head turner, you get guys in 100k m6's drooling and others who are shocked to see that an 80's car can be so quick. Even had a guy filming me on his phone on my way home. Gets complimented often

But that's not the point. You are buying the machine, not the looks. Looks are icing on the cake, and these are the greatest bmw's/cars ever built and a joy to drive

So if you wanted an e28 congratulations on your find. I will regret selling it as it has huge sentimental value to me but that's life. I'd be at ease knowing the new owner is taking car of it

We enthusiasts are caretakers. I left my mark in the cars history now it's time to pass the torch on to the next individual who will do the same and I am serious about finding it a good home

Not parting anything

BETTER PICS SOON very sorry for the horrendous

I wanna see it go to a good home
If not sold by November 30 car will no longer be for sale

$7500

Thanks

Big price drop- $6400

I've been getting tons of emails at kijiji from enthusiasts who end they're looong emails with really wish I had the money.....

Therefore price is going down to find this car a good bmw fanatic home even though I had a few wombats give me some real good offers

This e28 is worth putting money into.....it doesn't have the rust disease

This beauty of a ride is tucked away in my garage now! Rocketship is a good dude, and proved to be a great seller. I was lucky to buy this car.

Sometimes money isn't the only concern, I like the seller want to see the classics live on. We sink hard earned money and endless effort into these cars and build friendships based on this commonality. We want to see the mark well represented with properly cared for classics and we build communities with like minded people. If you buy a rust free example and start driving it in the winter your basically taking hard work of all the previous owners and stepping all over it. We have respect for the work that has been put in to maintain and we also want to continue to enjoy these cars for a long time.

How would you like it if I took an object that you cared for an crapped all over it. If you have any self respect you certainly wouldn't remain friends with me. We are not just buying and selling here, we're sharing knowledge and building friendships.
