1988 BMW 535i is a mildly modified example from the final year of E28 sedan production which is powered by a 3.5 liter inline-six paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. This car has had mechanical maintenance over the last six and a half years along with several cosmetic, interior, and suspension upgrades(all records pictured). An older repaint in white covers the original Cirrusblau Metallic and includes all four door jambs, though its engine bay and trunk were not painted. The finish is glossy in some areas but has faded and chipped in others(all chips pictured). An Audi 4000 spoiler has been mounted to the trunk lid, and both roundel badges are new. Refurbished 17×8″ BBS two-piece Style 5 wheels wear mirror-polished lips, baked-on finishes, freshened and correctly torqued hardware, new OEM center caps, and BFG Advantage All Season sport tires. A set of large rally lights has been added to the US-market front bumper and wired in with a relay, augmenting a new turn signal lens and brake light switch. Custom hand-stitched upholstery covers the front Comfort seats, rear bench, dashboard, shift boot, and front arm rests. All fits tightly and shows little wear setting off presentable door panels that are free of sagging or delamination and are equipped with new door handles A used instrument cluster was installed alongside all the other modifications and is likely to be the third fitted to the car, so its actual mileage remains unknown. A modern head unit with USB input has replaced the original stereo and powers uncovered aftermarket speakers in the front kick panels. Bosch Motronic fuel injection draws from a fresh fuel tank via replacement external and in-tank fuel pumps with a new relay and pressure regulator. Both the clutch master and slave cylinders were replaced along with fresh hydraulic hoses within the last year. New driveline also installed within the last year.
This car loves to be driven and is especially exceptional on long highway drives.
