1985 BMW 5-Series Additional Info:

I am finally ready to let go of my beloved and in all honesty the best handling and most reliable car I've owned.
I mostly ride a motorcycle and don't drive the car much anymore.
Please contact me with an offer if you know about these cars and the fact that they are becoming hard to find, especially with a Manual Transmission. I will see what kind of offers I get, I may not accept your offer right away but come back and accept it later. One of these cars restoredsold for $50,000 recently.
I may also re-list it for Bidding.
The car runs great and accelerates quickly, I am still amazed how quick this car is. It is actually quicker than many new cars. Lots of power & acceleration. It is much faster & acceleratesfaster than a 2002 Volvo that I drove recently (for example).
I have a stack of receipts for all the parts I replaced and work that was done.
It is well maintained, many things were changed on it:
New alternator
New high performance 3 yr warranty battery. Fires the engine right away.
Hoses and belts.
New Clutch, fly wheel,..etc.
Transmission, 5 speeds was replaced.
Brake master cylinder and pump.
Oil and filter changed every 3000-4000 miles and service light reset. Recently did an engine flush with German made engine flush, changed Oil and filter.
New electrical leather seats. No rips or tears. Protected with lamb skin covers. These were taken off a 735i so they are slightly wider and more comfortable. Have arm rests too.
Oil pressure sensor.
Radiator and fan.
Water pump and Thermostat.
Guipo....this is a rubber balancer/shock absorber for the drive shaft.
Valves adjusted with new bolts and gasket.
2 complete sets of wheels and tires. Fairly new set of Winter tires on car. At least a $1000 worth of extra/spare parts. The second set of wheels & tires (if you want it), have worn out tires but the BMW rims are decent.
New set of carpet mats.
Just overhauled and adjusted the hand brake and tested it.
Am/Fm/CD player with detachable face.
4 speakers were replaced.
Clean interior. No rips in the leather seats.
New computer with Dinan chip.
Transmission and rear deferential were flushed and new fluid was installed. Cooling system too.
New headlights.
Fog lights.
All fuses were replaced with new ones.
Spark plugs and other misc.
AC works.
And much more that I can't remember now.
Clean title and Pink Slip in hand.
No accidents.
The bad stuff:
The windshield is cracked from the inside. This happened when I was moving/carrying things inside the car. The windshield does not leak (Even in heavy rain). So I didn't bother to replace it as it isn't causing any problems. I called around and these cost around $125 replaced, maybe cheaper where you live.
The normal nicks and scratches on the paint. Couple of small dents.
Spot of rust on the left side of the rear window.
Some of the movements/adjustments on the electrical front seats don't work. This is an easy fix.
The odometer stopped working 1 yrs ago. This is simply a small plastic gear that needs replacing due to age. I have not put many miles on it so the mileage is fairly accurate as I ride my motorcycle & don't drive the car.
The rear muffler has a hole in it. I was going to patch it but I really like how the car sounds with the hole so I left it as is.
Sun roof does not work too well. It will open just fine but when you try to close it, it closes un-evenly. So I kept working at it till I got it to close correctly and left it closed. You can leave it or fix it.
This is NOT a New car or in Mint condition. It is a fully running car which I would drive across country with no hesitation. You can do the same or restore it however way you see fit.
Let me know if you want to see it/ or have any questions.
I would drive this car anywhere, it is very reliable. Takes Regular Gas (New BMW's take ONLY Premium), gets decent mileage and is very safe.
The older BMW's seem to have thicker steel compared to the new ones which have a lot of plastic and lighter steel to save weight and cost.
I need to wash and wax the car and will post more recent photos.
Again, this is NOT an Automatic. It has a 5 speed Manual Transmission.
Please make a Tentative offer. Better Photos coming soon

Car is located in San Jose, California. I can work with you if you need it shipped (you provide the shipping), or pick you up at the Airport if you want to come pick up the car.
Buyer is responsible for all taxes, fees and any other requirements in your state. I will give you a Bill of Sale and the California Title to the car.
