I have a 1985 535i, Arctic Blue, in FAIR condition. I have replaced ALL of the major mechanical parts with the past two years, and all parts were from BMW or manufacturer authorized manufacturers. NO weird mix and matches. Car runs fine, just needs someone who can spend more time and energy tweaking it's performance. Body has some rust underneath but invisible to passersby. Clear coat finish has come off of trunk but otherwise body is fine. I've been told by certified BMW mechanics I trust that there's another 200k on the car.

Vast majority of MY mileage (I bought it 100k miles ago) has been on freeway or country highways. Very little city/town. I'm just tired of buying weird-sized tires and searching for discontinued parts. However, a hobbyist or collector will enjoy this car because basic platform is great. Speeds of up to 140 MPH don't bother this car. If it weren't for the law I'd drive it around 100 on the highway because this is where she PURRS.

I'm asking $4000 USD. I live in New Jersey. Serious offers only. - Neil
