• The E28 535i is a great car, and $1800 is definitely on the cheaper end of E28 values. Then again, 254,100 miles is a lot of miles – even for an E28. While the list of mods and maintenance suggests someone cared about this car, it also suggests that it'll still feel like a 254,100 mile car.

    If that is some sort of tow hitch (hard to tell), then where is the exhaust pipe? That's pretty much the location it would normally emerge from. The part that really bugs me though…when you see air fresheners in cars for sale. To me it says, "This car I'm trying to sell you really stinks!"

    Sorry, it's a Monday morning.

  • Upon closer inspection, it appears this is the rare "illest" edition 535i. That alone has to double the market value, right?

  • As the proud owner of an '89 E34 535i with almost 270K miles on it, I can attest to the bulletproof nature of these cars. The only major failure I've experienced in the last three years was the water pump dying (I believe these came from the factory with plastic impellers).

    RE the tailpipe: the seller states in the ad that it has custom exhaust.

    RE air freshener: based solely on broad stereotypes and assumptions (lives in San Jose, CA, modded BMW with "illest" badge) the owner of this vehicle is a young asian male (mid to late 20s). This demographic has a certain fascination with air fresheners, and I would not take this as some sort of attempt to mask a foul odor in the car.

    The future owner of this car can look forward to style, comfort and luxury coupled with excellent road manners. The future owner of this car can also look forward to spending 2-3x the value of this car in maintenance over the next few years. But if that scares you, why are you reading this site? 😉

  • As I mask my foul odors, thinking of my Oriental forefathers, it occurs to me that you could scrap this and make 1800.00. That alone makes it worth the price it if drives and doesnt leak too much oil……
