Two Uber Low Mileage 5’ers in Portland

I’ve had lots of inquiries about my newly acquired 1985 e28 535i, but these two 5’ers have similar condition but super low miles to boot. Ride in style in either of these two examples for less than $10k!

I cant say enough about how clean this car is. email or call me with any questions or if you would like to see more photos.

quote from Craigslist Portland:

This car is immaculate and clean. It generates compliments. 59,000 original miles. The color is called “bronzit” – original BMW factory paint color which is a metallic silvery goldish color. This car has always been garaged and well cared for. The paint is immaculate. The interior is immaculate. The engine and transmission are excellent. It has been regularly serviced and maintained. Some features of this car includes: automatic transmission, power windows and doors, sun roof, AC, original leather with no tears, immaculate factory floor mats, newer tires, battery, and alarm system. Everything is factory original with the exception of the addition of a car alarm, and a new Am/Fm Cassette player. Recent service maintenance have also been performed. For those of you who are collectors of classic cars – it comes with the original owner’s manual and also a complete set of the original BMW tools located in the truck of the car.

Both of these cars are already modern classics and in lovely condition. Why buy a $10k Kia when you could pick up one of these beauts for less and arrive with much more presence at the same time!

    These listings are pretty outdated and I’m not seeing either on Craigslist right now.

    You might want to subscribe by .rss or email (above right) to catch future low mileage finds.

    Thanks for your comment,

    I own a 1980 bmw 528i alpine white with red leather seats. The drivers side bottom bucket seat needs to be rebuilt. The leather is pretty good but the undercarriage ie the springs and the foam under the leather is gone. Also the horsehair which probably was used at time of manufacute is gone. do you have any ideas or suppliers that could help me with the foam bun; the shape of the curves and the springs and clips? I would like to correct the problem myself or with some help. Thank you Norman Thomas

    Sounds like a great color combo on your car! I’d think your best bet would be to go to the wrecking yard and get a seat bottom to deconstruct. As for new parts to restore, I’d hit up and ask the experts there. Though your car isn’t an e28, their community is very active and I’m sure someone will be able to help. Good luck!
