OT: 1982 528E

Recommended Posts

I am buying my daughter a new Honda Civic and selling her 528E. It has served us well for the last 1.5 years.

It has just over 140K original miles on it. It had been sitting for almost 2 years when I bought it. We went through everything to make it safe for my daughter to drive to school and to work every day.

The fabric on the top of the lower cushion (in the center) of the rear seat has started to come apart. And. although the fronts have been covered with sheepskins most of their life, the fabric there is also falling apart. The sun makes the cloth brittle enough to start falling apart. Strangely enough, the top of the rear seat's back cushion is NOT falling apart.

The exterior is unbelievable... All original paint with no sun or accident damage.

The original owner bought this beauty in Irvine in 1982 and garaged it at home and at work. When her husband could no longer drive, they decided to use his Mercedes S320 instead and parked the 528e in the garage. They finally reached a point when it no longer made sense to keep it and tried to sell it "as is" (would not start, covered in dust, sitting in the garage). The eventually accepted my offer and I sent it to Eurotech in Mission Viejo to be fully sorted out.

Everything works and the car drives great.

The car and I are located in Irvine. I will have pictures next week (after it stops raining).

I will be looking to get at least $4K on Craigslist (advertise it for $5K and take $4K). I will offer here to my '02 friends for $3500.

BTW, it is Baltic Blue Metallic with a light cream cloth interior. And, it is an automatic transmission.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
