We took many, many photos, see them all by cutting and pasting this link: https://gburnsphoto.smugmug.com/M5 This is it! The one, the only 1988 BMW M5. Clean title in hand. Only 1,238 made for the US. Starts, runs and drives. Body, frame, components all look very clean and very nice. A few rust bubbles here and there, the most significant being on the sunroof area. See the photos. It is extremely clean throughout. Appears original and unmolested. Interior is quite clean as well. Odometer reads 158,237. The car does show signs of wear commiserate with this many miles, such as wear and some fading to paint, and wear to the interior. But nothing beyond what would be expected. Engine idles well and feels strong. Shifts well. There is sometimes a clunking sound upon releasing the clutch when shifting that comes from the driver's side rear, we believe it to be a bad CV joint. You can see in the photos that that CV joint is leaking. Car cycles through the gears well, and goes into reverse without issue. We only drove this car around the lot where it is garaged, so we did not get up to highway speeds. Electrical seems good overall, with lights turning on, signals working although a rear brake light is out, along with a front turn signal. We did not operate the sunroof. The car does not have a battery. It is locally owned by a man who is now in his late 80s. This car was driven and on the road through 2019. It was purchased by this gent in 1994 (Sorry, we had said 1996 previously but actually he bought in '94). Car includes extensive paperwork and records, as well as manuals and more. Even includes its cassette tape as well as a little light that plugs in and charges in the glove box. VIN is WBSDC9306J2875087. Payment shall be via cash, wire transfer or a cashier's check. Payment must be made within two days of the close of the auction, or by 5 PM EST on April 16. Once paid for, pickup will be by appointment and must be within 10 days of the close of the auction, or by 5 PM EST on April 24. The car is located in Westerville, Ohio. We will have a preview available on this car on April 14 between Noon at 2 pm. Preview will be by appointment only. To make an appointment call 614-271-3014 ext. 5 or text that number. All preview appointments must be made by 7 pm EST on April 13.
