Needs More Power: 1985 BMW 524TD

Sorry about all the BMWs recently, I’ve just been feeling the German thing recently and…well…what am I apologizing for…if you don’t like BMWs go start your own Daily Turismo competitor site and call it Daily Not BMWs or Daily Honda.  Anyway, I’m not a fan of buying cars that have “stopped running”, particularly if they cost more than a few hundred bucks, but this next car is surprisingly clean and appears to have considerable potential…particularly if you ditch the worthless oil burner and slushbox in favor for something like an N54 and 6-speed manual.  Find this 1985 BMW 524TD offered for $2500 in Berkeley, CA via craigslist.

Hey CL, I’m selling my 1985 BMW 524td as it stopped running and don’t have the time to figure out why or do an engine swap. It cranks but does not start. This car will never require a smog as it is smog exempt. 

Clean title in hand with current tags.

Thanks for looking!
