5/13/17 - Update

Car has "sold" three times since February.  One was to a fake account. one failed to process a payment after DP and the third most recently was out of France.  I didn't mind the auction process until now. thus I've spiked the price to my buy it now and will accept best offers.


Thanks for taking a peak at my true import 1987 BMW M535i. M30B34.   It's a Japanese spec DC89 (LHD catalyst. automatic): 1. 40 produced internationally from 03/1985 through 09/1987.  This cars were hand assembled in Munich. this M-Technic body kit is real and original.  These were never for sale or produced in the United States.  

Yes. this isn't an M5 so stop reading if that's solely what you're looking for.  If you think I'll take anything near the price of a E28 535i you can stop reading as well.  Mechanically it's ready to turn key and go. daily or sunday. no CELs. Import to your door alone costs close to $3. 00 - $4. 00 so please do some research before trying to offer me 10k because I'll click reject and won't think twice.  Less than 50 registered last time I checked.


Car was imported in November of 2015. has spent entire life since babied. garaged and washed weekly.  I had original intentions of importing a 930 or Rauh-Welt. thus my reason for sale at this time.


Rather than storing this winter. I sent her to a local reputable shop out of Southern New Hampshire called DTM Autowerks.   If you're familiar with east coast car culture. you may have seen their work at such shows like Wolfsgart and H2Oi.   At this time the car had less than 110. 00 miles and was ready for a revival.   I spared zero expense to bring this car back to where it deserved to be. the following is a list of work done over the past two months.   I have receipts for everything I've ever done with this car. including the recent inspection report.



·      Engine/transmission were removed from car and separated from one another.

·      Degreased and cleaned all exterior surfaced of the engine/transmission.

·      Engine accessories were removed. valve cover. oil pan. timing cover. water pump and thermostat housing.

·      Upon original inspection. slight cylinder leak.   Cylinder head was removed and sent to a machine shop for a pressure test and inspection.   With a slight warp to head upon diagnosis. we had it rebuilt and machined true.

·      Installed all NEW seals and gaskets including rear main seal. front crank sea. valve cover gasket. oil pan gasket and timing cover set… everywhere.

·      Installed new water pump and thermostat.

·      With the drivetrain out. engine compartment was cleaned.

·      Reinstalled motor/transmission assembly.

·      Installed new accessory belts and radiator hoses.

·      An obvious oil change and cooling system filled.

·      Car was run to temp to bleed air from cooling system.

·      At conclusion. car was checked for leaks. not a drop can be found.



·      Front = GOOD

·      Rear = installed new rotors/premium pads. Clean and lubricate caliper slides.   Adjusted park brake. bleed system as needed and road tested ensure proper operation.



·      Replaced front pipe to manifold gaskets.

·      Installed new rubber exhaust hangers.

·      Slight patina near downpipe/tips.



·      GOOD and TIGHT

·      Installed new seals on the inner axle cups.

·      Removed strut housing from vehicle to access/remove strut inserts to replace with new ones.   All road tested for operation.



·      Almost zero issues. slight fading on drivers seat corner closest to door. No rips or tears ANYWHERE.   To quote one of my friends today. “How does this look cleaner than my new Audi?”

·      A slight 1cm crack in dashboard.   All windows work flawlessly. including the huge sunroof and shade.



·      Sits on BBS RX's

·      Aftermarket stereo/speakers – wiring issue causes them to work on and off.

·      Aftermarket kill switch for battery in engine bay.

·      Has been repainted but matched in history. key marks near gas lid.   Otherwise amazing condition for age.  Car had phone antenna mounted on trunk. since removed.  

·      Front bumper was professionally restored and painted. as it looked fatigued upon purchase.

·      Original engine hood insulation was near non-existent. replaced with Bavarian-spec.

I haven't see one for sale in the U. S. in the past year. the most recent was one out of NZ that was a manual transmission for $24. 00.  If you find a similar example. I'll match the price.  This is one of the cleanest M535i's out there. let alone an E28.  It was valued at $16. 00 prior to restoration. then $20. 00 to $25. 00.  Happy to connect you with both professional shops who have serviced.  

Car comes with full documentation. original titles. inspection document and requested import documents.  I have most recent receipts. over $6. 00 in last year alone on tune up and rebuild.

Car is for sale locally and other platforms so I reserve the right to end.  I have a folder of over 100 photos for serious buyers. however all in person visits are more than encouraged. Also. happy to assist with shipping. lots of domestic and international experience.  If you have serious import inquiries feel free to message. Thanks for your time and consideration!
