The E28 is one of our favorite BMW sedans, from a period when Bimmer could do no wrong. We're not sure what happened, but a new 5-series doesn't quite stir us in the same way, despite more power than the M30 inline-six found in the 535i above.
Here's the description from the LA-based seller:
I'm selling a 4 door, 1987 BMW 535 i series that was just in the recent Audi commercial shown during the super bowl. The car was racing through the streets, then jumped through a billboard ad, if you remember the commercial. The car landed on a pile of open boxes to cushion the land absolutely no damage done. The paint job is new, tires. Great great shape. Drives good except I think it may need a tranny someday??? and It didn't pass smog, i think it might be a loose hose or something.. great to drive. looks new! 155,000 miles.
Let's run through the checklist here. Doesn't pass smog check? CHECK. Used as a stunt car? CHECK. Driven through a billboard? CHECK! IF you were in the market for one it could be a special one to get but, for $2,000, you could probably get a more reliable version. Anyone still "WANT" the Bimmer? Thanks to WC for the tip!
