Description for BMW 5-Series 1987

Up for sale today is my tastefully modified 1987 BMW 535i. I bought the car a year and a half ago from a BMW collector in Florida.The owner before that was a BMW master technician.

Overall, this is a very nicely executed E28. Over $25,000 in parts and labor went into this car. It is not a show car or garage queen, but an extremely great driver with the euro looks to spare. Fast in a straight line and handles extremely well in the corners. It really can keep up with much more modern cars. In my opinion, the European market E28 is one of the most beautiful cars to come out of Germany. The car puts a smile on my face every time I drive it. I have all the receipts and will include them in the sale.

The car was featured on Bringatrailer in 2015.Ebay won’t let me add a link to bringatrailer, but if you just google search “bringatrailer euro e28 535i” it is the first result.

Also, I will be keeping the steering wheel seen in the photos. The car will come with an oem e28 wheel instead of the m-tech wheel seen in the photos.

Good luck to all, and thanks for the interest in my e28!
