For your consideration – a beautifully well kept, thoroughly maintained, reliable 1988 BMW 528e, designated as the E28 chassis. Please see below for additional details, pictures, and an inquiry form –
Overview: 1-owner, 171k miles, well-maintained excellent driver shown in BMW’s classic all-original Cirrus Blue Metallic paint. With loads of preventative and timely maintenance, this stout E28 is equipped to see many years of trouble-free enjoyment.
Recent notable maintenance –
Timing belt and water pump replaced 10,000mi and 1.5 yrs ago with OEM replacements
Recent 20W50 engine oil and oil filter change
F/R brake rotors, brake pads, brake fluid
Front control arms, front control arm bushings
OE BMW power steering pump, power steering pump lines, fluid
OE BMW AC compressor – Air conditioning retrofitted to the readily available/serviceable R134A
Bosch spark plugs, distributor cap and wires
Brand new OE BMW chrome door and window trim; this is now NLA and exceedingly rare
All original example with no modifications from the factory aside from 15×7″ BBS wrapped in like-new 225/50-16 Kumho Ecsta.
Notable Imperfections –
Minor front-end rock chips; par for the course with age
Minor scratch throughout; par for the course with age on driver-side rear wheel arch
Cosmetic dent on driver-side front fender
2″ rip on passenger-side of rear leather bench
Everything works – A/C blows sub 50°, heat and defroster work, all windows, sunroof, seat motor movements, interior functions work exactly as intended, while the 9-button OBD dashboard all illuminate and operate. Fun fact: this is the first BMW produced with a factory “Check Engine Light!” — which is not displaying any error codes or malfunctions.
The interior leather is very supple and in excellent shape with one 2″ tear on the passenger-side rear bench. Headliner, all A/B/C pillar fabric are not sagging and the carpet shows no signs of any water intrusion. The exterior paint has maintained great depth and metallic flake, free of any clear coat failure or oxidation anywhere – showing no notable imperfections other than the aforementioned cosmetic defects. All VIN tags are present and visible.
This is an original, well-sorted, unique, and famously reliable example that will provide unparalleled nostalgia and the ultimate driving experience — without the mechanic’s ultimate invoice.
