This is a very original low mile survivor BMW E23 735i with only 83K miles from new. There is zero visible rust and the paint appears to be about 90% original showing no clear coat failure. Only the rear doors and lower passenger door show evidence of non-factory paintwork. However, the color and texture match is good and it is unnoticeable at first glance. All the glass has the original BMW logos and is in great shape. The car does have some minor dings that can be easily fixed with paint-less dent repair (PDR) to be perfect.

The interior is completely original (aside from the new radio) and is in exceptional condition for its age with supple leather seating showing very little wear except for a tear in the driver side bolster. The HVAC system is fully functional with cold AC and all electrical equipment and accessories work with the exception of the power radio antenna and an intermittent driver seat recline mechanism that seems to work fine in warm weather. Carpets are very clean but have some scattered spots that can clean up. All interior wood and plastic is in great shape aside from some chipped away wood over the center console storage bin and a few minor cracks in the dash. The headliner is as from the factory, but is showing its age. The rear sunshade is near perfect showing minimal usage.

Mechanically, this car is very well sorted. It starts easily and idles smoothly. As expected, it feels like a low mile BMW E23 should; solid, comfortable and quiet and a joy to drive on the highway cruising at high speeds. New lowering springs and performance gas shocks make the car surprisingly agile. It handles very well with a nice supple, controlled ride.
