E28528E Is Almost A Palindrome: 1985 BMW 528e

The E28 generation BMW 5-series is a favorite around here because a few reasons; manual transmissions are plentiful, the styling is pre-Bangled, performance/ride is modern, reliability isn’t bad, and prices are reasonable (at least until hipsters drive them up!).  Obviously, we’d prefer the 182 horsepower 535i version that will keep up with modern traffic, but for the frugal folks in the crowd (and those who aren’t in a hurry) the 121 horsepower 528e might be the 5-series you are looking for. Find this 1985 BMW 528e offered for $3800 in Dublin, CA via craigslist.
