BMW 520i Auto 1984 in Polaris Silver
* Full Service History
* Excellent condition
* Only 106,000 Miles
* 11 Months MOT
* Only 4 Owners
* Alloy Wheels
I purchased this car in April 2007 and I am only the fourth keeper of this 25 year old vehicle. The car has been garaged during my ownership and I have only done around 4,000 miles in this time. The BMW 5-series was one of the most reliable cars in the 1980’s and this car has been 100% reliable for me, it has never let me down and it is in fantastic condition for its age. It is a cool looking motor and always attracts admiring glances from people when you are driving it. These cars are appreciating future classics and their values should only increase in the coming years if they are looked after.
The car has covered 106,000 miles. I have no reason to doubt the authenticity of the mileage and in fact the garage that has undertaken work and MOT’s on the car in the past two years for me have also indicated that they have no reason to doubt it either.
The current Mot expires on October 19th 2010 (IT HAS 11 MONTHS MOT) . The car has been MOT’ed three times during my ownership with the following results:
2007 – Welding to the jacking points and floor pans (common on E28’s) required
2008 – Passed MOT first time with no problems
2009 – Passed MOT first time with no problems
The car has a full service history with all the stamps present. The last service was 2000 miles ago.
Reason for Sale
I have enjoyed driving this car for the last two years and have decided to purchase another E28 BMW, but this time it is the faster, more expensive M535i model and hence I am selling the 520i. I shall be sad to sell this car as it has been a pleasure to drive and I hope the new owner enjoys it as much as I have done.
The 2 litre straight six petrol engine has a nice sound and is very smooth. The gear changes on the automatic box are smooth and the kick down works as it should. I have a receipt for work carried out by a EJ Rose Automatics, Mansfield, (specialists in automatic transmissions) for the previous owner in Aug 2006 at 96368 miles that states "Remove gearbox and fit forward clutch pack".
The car is painted in Polaris Solver. The paintwork on the car looks excellent with no visible rust on any of the panels. The car has been painted at some point during its life but as you would expect on a car of this age there are a few minor scratches and stone chips. There is a small dent at the back of the car, it does not affect anything and is only really visible on close inspection. This is probably the only bad point about the whole car, but one I must obviously mention.
The interior is finished in anthracite cloth (grey/black) and is in excellent condition. There is very little wear on the seats and the driver’s seat is in excellent condition. Many cars of this age have very worn out drivers seats, but this one looks good. There are no cracks on the dashboard (a common problem on E28’s). There are also a full set of original BMW E28 floor mats.
The car has a CD player with a flip-off front installed, and has an automatic electric aerial.
The car has 5 BBS BMW alloy wheels on it at the moment. These were taken from an E34 520. The original steel wheels with wheel trims that came with the car originally will be included in the sale too. So you will be getting 10 wheels and tyres!!!
Windows and Sunroof
The front windows are electric and there is a manually operated tilt-and-slide sunroof which all work fine. Many E28’s leak water from rot around the sun roof drain holes in to the car resulting in wet front foot wells. The drain holes in the sun roof have been have been repaired to allow the water to drain to the correct place, thus not resulting in a wet foot well!
I insure this car on a classic car policy and it costs me £130 per year.
* A common fault on E28’s is wet boots caused by perished boot and rear light seals. This car does not suffer from this. The boot is bone dry.
* This car has central locking.
* The car has Power Steering
* There is an alarm system fitted to the car which I have never attempted to use. It is operated by an additional key lock in the driver’s door and I do not have the key.
