Would you believe this BMW 535is has 200k miles on the clock?
A classic 1987 BMW 535is is up for grabs in the United States with 195,000 miles (nearly 314,000 kilometers) under the belt. Despite its considerable age, the sedan looks and feels great thanks to proper care and aftermarket mods.
The current owner of the car bought it in 2012. Pre-purchase preparation included a thorough round of maintenance that saw spark plugs, the water pump, the rotor, the coupling and a handful of other components replaced along with all the liquids. The auction lot includes some replacement parts, too.
On the outside, the rarity wears a Cinnabar Red paintjob and has yellow anti-fog lamps. There is a slim spoiler on the trunk lid, a sunroof, and new exhaust tips in the middle of the rear end. 16x8-inch Alpina-like wheels fill out the arches, and brakes are disc-based all around. H&R springs and Bilstein shock absorbers improve comfort, handling, and stance.
Open the door to discover black leather seats put in covers for the time being, power windows, a wooden stick shift knob, a different steering wheel, and an Alpine multimedia system.
Powering the elderly sedan is an M30 3.4-liter inline-six rated at 185 PS (182 hp / 137 kW) and 290 Nm (214 lb-ft) of torque. A five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential help convey the momentum to the wheels.
