Description for BMW 5-Series 1988

This is a comprehensive and detailed listing for my 1988 BMW E28 535I with a5 speedtransmission. The car comes with the last 16+ years of service records, originalservice manual and booklets. It has been owned by the last owner for the last 16+ years.The car is not perfect, however, with a little bit of TLC can be one nice ride.

PS: Odometer is stuck on 198,000.

The good:

- Clear title and drivable

- Car has passed the mandatory state inspection per NC

- Car is registered and property taxes are paid

- Body is straight with minimal dings ( small one on the driver side)

- No rust anywhere ( I checked all over the car)

- Engine is very strong and is solid, not burning oil, no miss-fire

- Electric seats

- Has the original radio

What needs work:

- Changing the differential

- U joints on the driveshaft

- Rear CV axles

- Front lower and upper control arms + ball joints

- Trailing arm

- AC compressor leaking

- Shift linkage needs tightening

- Front rotors

- Check engine light flashing but engine is solid

- Small crack on the reverse light lens

The E28 is an amazing car and they are getting harder and harder to find. The right enthusiasts will be able to fix the common problems given the age of the car.
