Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.

Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.

Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.

If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area

If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash

For WTB threads

-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.

In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    FS: 1988 535i (5 speed) 199k Miles

    Unfortunately I have to part with my E28. I have owned this car for about a year now with plans to restore it and turbocharge it. I have since been faced with other financial obligations that left it parked for most days. When I purchased this car it needed a new transmission with other miscellaneous work. The car has a 5 speed manual transmission and has 198k miles on the odometer (which works). And is mostly free from rust and rot other than in the front pinch-welds.

    I have replaced the transmission with a low mileage (75k) Getrag 260/6 (Redline MTL fluid).

    New OEM transmission mounts.

    New Clutchmasters FX300 clutch installed with resurfaced OEM flywheel.

    Shifter bushings have been replaced as well and I installed a Z3 shifter and ZHP M shift knob.

    H&R sport springs with OE replacement shocks.

    Rear subframe bushings replaced to Poweflex poly bushings.

    Rear differential bushing replaced with new OEM part.

    Driveshaft bearing support replaced with new OEM part.

    Oil changed twice since original purchase last year (Castrol conventional oil).

    K&N air intake to replace broken stock air box (AFM still intact and works perfectly).

    Car has no leaking fluids or vacuum leaks. AC has been converted to R134 but needs a recharge.

    Tachometer does not work but the rest of the cluster operates as it should.

    Car as been repainted 5 years ago from what the previous owner told me and bumpers have been painted and tucked as well. Chrome trim has been shadow-lined.

    Overall the car runs and drives perfectly. Exterior is 8/10 and interior is 7/10 due to some leather fading in uneven spots causing mismatched front seats.

    Asking 5000 OBO. Located in Hicksville, NY.

    If I wasn't trying to buy a house, I'd be all over this...

    1992 525iT w/ S52 swap - SOLD


      Man you're killing me! I've wanted an e28 for while now. And this one ticks all the right boxes.

      90 Bronzit 325is
      16 Black Sapphire 340i M Sport


        Bump. I'm realizing that maybe my price point was a little high. I am adjusting the price to be a little more true to what some similar E28's are selling for. Asking 5000 and am accepting all reasonable offers.
