Classic BMWs are almost unattainable for most enthusiasts. These have become so costly that even buying a clean E30 325i in a Bring-A-Trailer will cost a new GTI. However, if you want that classic great BMW look, feel and style, there is an old insurance for sale that can be cheap enough for the common man to buy – this E28 BMW 535i for sale in cars and bids.
Forget the E28 M5s (I can’t actually, they are the best), they are very expensive today. If you want some affordable classic BMW sedan driving, you need to get a low 5 series and BMW 535i is that car. It looks just like the E28 M5 but for much less money. And it comes with a 3.5-liter inline-six, a five-speed manual and rear-wheel drive, just as the BMW gods wanted.
This particular 1986 example is lovely; Black on black and driver condition. What is the status of the driver? It looks really good from just a few feet away but has a few holes, scratches and minor problems that prevent it from being perfect, allowing you to get rid of that hard guilt. Absolutely the perfect car no one wants to hun. So the one with the smallest problem frees you from that emotional burden, allows you to have guilt-free fun with the car.
Inside, it’s better than the outside. It looks really clean and fresh, without any noticeable signs of wear. It looks like the kind of car you can get in and drive without the thought of scratching anything.
The only changes to this car are the 7 Series wheels and the Silverline muffler. Other than that, it’s bone stock. Even it still has its big American bumper, which many American enthusiasts replace with euros.
At the moment (as of this writing), there are still seven days left in the auction, the current bid is $ 5,000. I don’t know how far it will go but it is definitely going to be cheaper than an E28 M5, especially since it has cosmetic issues. If you are looking for a more affordable classic BMW then this might be it.
