1985 BMW M535i

For sale is my BMW M535i. This car is in wonderful condition inside and out and is completely original in every way. The exterior and interior have true time-warp credentials and everything works as it should. There is no indication of the 38 years this car has been on the road.

This period of car has benefited from a strong surge of interest in recent years and this is a superb example of a true 1980’s sleeper car.

She drives perfectly. No vibration through the steering or brakes, no knocks from the suspension or drivetrain and the engine pulls like a train!

The car is sitting on its immaculate original wheels (refurbished in 2017) with new TRX metric tyres. The car also comes with a full set of 15” e34 BBS wheels (also refurbished in 2017) with new Continental Premium Contact 5 tyres.

The car is fitted with a period correct Blaupunkt stereo system.

The bodywork is faultless other than a small area of corrosion on the rear window seal corner. Otherwise it’s completely faultless.

The car has just been (Aug 2018) fully serviced by Chelsea Autoworx, a Classic BMW service expert with a long list of service orientated repairs carried out and a fresh MOT. The gear selection was feeling a little vague so the linkage has been fully rebuilt along with myriad gaskets and gearbox seals giving the 5-speed dogleg box a fresh from the factory feel.

The car comes with an extensive history file and was even featured in a classic car magazine article in 2016 (included in the history file).

If you’re not after a project and just want a car you can drive that won’t loose money in depreciation, this is it…
