YOU ARE VIEWING A RARE EXAMPLE OF A 1985 BMW 5-SERIES, THE 524TD. IT IS A 2.4L, 6-CYLINDER TURBO DIESEL ENGINE MATED TO AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION, WITH OVERDRIVE. THE GOOD NEWS IS THIS BMW HAS BEEN IN THE SOUTHERN UNITED STATES SINCE NEW AND HAS ABSOLUTELY NO RUST!! IT DRIVES SMOOTHLY WITH NEW TIRES AND RECENTLY REPLACED REAR SHOCKS. HAVING WORKED FOR BMW IN THE '80s, I CAN ATTEST THAT THE CAR HAS MAINTAINED ITS TIGHT DRIVING FEEL THROUGH THE YEARS. THIS 5-SERIES SPORTS SCHWARZ (BLACK) PAINT / BLACK LEATHER AND APPEARS TO HAVE HAD ONE EXTERIOR REFINISH. THE BODY IS STRAIGHT AND IS ROCK SOLID! AS THE PICTURES SHOW, THE PAINT ISN'T PERFECT, BUT SHINES WELL. ALTHOUGH THE ORIGINAL LEATHER SHOWS SOME FRONT SEAT WEAR, IT IS STILL VERY SERVICEABLE. REPLACEMENT INSERTS COULD BE OBTAINED LOCALLY OR ONLINE IF YOU DESIRE TO RESTORE THEM. THE 524TD STARTS QUICKLY AND RUNS WELL. WITH THAT SAID, IT IS NO ROCKET SHIP! IT WAS DESIGNED TO GIVE BMW OWNERS THE APPOINTMENTS AND FEEL THAT THEY'D COME TO EXPECT, WHILE OFFERING AN ASTOUNDING 33 MPG HIGHWAY MILES!! THIS CAR IS A BLAST TO DRIVE! THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTS AS IT SHOULD AND THE BRAKES ARE IN WORKING ORDER. THE PREVIOUS OWNER ADDED A START BUTTON NEXT TO THE IGNITION KEY, INSTEAD OF REPLACING THE SWITCH, BUT IT WORKS WITHOUT ISSUE. THE A/C BLOWS COLD AND THE REPLACEMENT AM/FM STEREO WITH CD SOUNDS GOOD. THE SUNROOF WORKS, ALONG WITH ALL WINDOWS, EXCEPT FOR THE L/REAR (POSSIBLE SWITCH). ITS GETTING HARDER TO FIND A 524TD IN THIS CONDITION. ALTHOUGH FAR FROM PERFECT, IT STILL IS A REALLY COOL AND RARE EXAMPLE OF THE BMW 5-SERIES. WHETHER YOU'VE OWNED ONE IN THE PAST OR ARE JUST LOOKING FOR AN "OLD SCHOOL" BMW TO DRIVE TO CAR SHOWS, LOCAL CRUISE-INS, OR OCCASIONALLY TO THE OFFICE, THIS 1985 BMW 524TD IS FOR YOU!!
