This is a very complete, solid and presentable E28 528e. All body panels are very straight with good gaps. It appears to have had one high quality re-spray at some point in its original factory color, however, all door jambs, inside the trunk and engine compartment show original factory paint and all factory VIN# tag stickers are present on all panels. There is minimal rust limited to the lower rear window seal and some isolated bubbling at the lower driver’s side front fender. The rocker panels are in good condition with only slight surface rust near both front jacking points. The underbody is excellent with no significant corrosion.


The interior is clean with soft supple leather seating surfaces in very good condition. Driver’s seat has some typical wear on seating surfaces and arm rest and one of the bolsters is torn. Dash has typical cracks. Hand brake needs adjustment/repair. All electrics work except the factory radio (not hooked up), power door locks,passenger headrest height adjustmentand a missing glove box light. Rear speakers have been upgraded with quality aftermarket speakers. Has a broken antenna mast. AC blows cold.


The car starts up easily and settles to a smooth and quiet idle. Throttle response is a bit hesitant when cold, but drives fine when warm with no strange drivetrain vibrations or noises. The motor runs cool and has no leaks and no smoke. Handling is very good and controlled. Suspension, with Bilstein HD shocks on factory springs, feels tight with no shake or shimmy at speed or while braking. Braking is very good with a recent brake service. Tires have about 2k miles and are mounted on 16 x 8 OEM BMW E38 alloy wheels in good condition. New rear muffler.Fuel consumption is good, averaging 29+ mpg on I-5N from Los Angeles to San Francisco.
