1988 BMW E28 M5

Available now is an excellent 1988 Bmw E28 M5, featuring the powerful 3.5L S38 inline six paired to a 5 speed manual that pulls through the rev range strong and smooth giving the driving a sense of excitement to shift to the next gear. Our M5 lived its whole life as a southern California car only having two owners and a stack of records including the original sales agreement. The car is a clean title, clean Carfax, 2 owner, very well maintained example of one of the more rare Bmw models.

Recently the car received a full service, including the ignition system, fuel system, oil change, and front suspension arms and steering linkage. From factory the M5 was fitted with SLS(self leveling suspension), this system was very problematic and heavy, this M5 has had the SLS replaced with Bilstein struts and H&R springs to alleviate the problems caused by the SLS An H&R front anti-roll bar has also been fitted, these changes allow the car to feel tighter and improve the handling characteristics. Included with the car are all of the SLS parts that were removed.

Looking at the exterior of the car the paint is in good condition with few imperfections, and all panels meter original except for the hood, all panels have vin stickers as well. All of the glass in the car is the original Bmw glass. The original basket weave wheels are wrapped in Advan A048 tires that provide excellent grip. All of the door handles and trunk pop button function as intended. Overall the car is in good condition with only minor imperfections.

Moving inside, the interior is in good condition showing no major stains, rips or imperfections. All of the power functions of the car are fully functional including the power seats, the only exception to this is the headrests. The original dash did have some common cracking so a dash cap was professionally installed. An upgraded head unit has been fitted and the original head unit is included with the car.

When driving the car it reminds you why a manual straight six Bmw is so great, as you roll into throttle the car pulls strong and smooth all the way to redline ready to be shifted to the next gear. The tweaks that have been made to the suspension give the car a tight nimble feel that can inspire confidence in anyone. In general the driving experience of the car is what you want out of an older M-car smooth, tight, and fun.
