Rare E12 528i 5 speed

Hi,

Up for sale is a 1980 BMW 528i. It is a 5 speed car with the fuel injected engine. It spent most of it's life in B.C. and has spent the past 10 years inside a garage. It is dirty, and needs some cleaning, but is a very solid car.

Before it was parked, it ran and drove. Have not tried to start it since then.

The interior is in excellent shape. The paint is slightly faded but is in really good shape overall, considering it's the original paint. There are a few small rust spots, mostly on the drivers side. The bottom inside of the drivers door has a few areas of rust, as does by the rear of the engine bay on the drivers side. The worst instance of rust is on the drivers side rear quarter panel, and it is not that bad. The rear shock towers are in excellent shape, with no rust or rot, just like the underbody.

This car really just needs some cosmetic TLC and a tune-up.

These cars are getting incredibly rare, and finding one in this shape is even rarer. I do not have a set price in mind, as I have no market value to base the value of this car on - look at how many have been for sale locally recently. None! Make me a fair offer. I can be reached via PM and then email or phone. The car is located just outside of Georgetown if you would like to see it in person first.

This car has spend the last 10 years inside. If we don't receive any reasonable offers, it will stay inside for the next 10, at which point these cars will be all the more valuable. We just have too many other projects on the go to deal with it.

We also have black E12 530i, automatic, that has been sitting outside. It would make an excellent parts car. It is shown in some pictures. It would be sold without the wheels currently on it, and without an ignition. This car could be worked into the deal. It was also running before parked.

*** would consider trades for 2002s, E24 6 series, and E9 3.0 BMWs only.

Haha why's that? It's been stored inside and hasn't rotted outside in the elements.

I got one kijiji offer within 20 minutes of posting for $250. I lol'd. If this doesn't sell I'll just buy it from my dad, do the minor work needed, and put it on some bbs wheels.

I have to agree with the posters, it appears the car will need alot of work, body, cleaning, restoration, all suspension parts, braking components and being it's a old bmw electrical for sure.
If you believe it needs minor work and some bbs wheels, then I suggest you do that because you will get more money for a car that's running an looks better.
In the current state $250 is what most people would be willing to pay.
Good luck with your sale

I hope you don't expect to get much for it in that shape....

You are better off cleaning it up and trying to get it running if you want anything decent for it. As it sits it will need a ton of work to get it road worthy...

I should note that the panel that goes underneath the steering wheel was removed but can be seen in front of the passenger seat. The exhaust was also removed from the car before being parked but is included with the car.

Anyone seriously interested will be able to see past the dust and bird shit to the unmolested clean example of a late E12. I can't imagine it needing a ton of work... a ton of detailing, yes. Other than that... some new tires, new fluids, lubricating the brakes, etc etc. If it comes to doing all that work... we will just keep the car!

If there are issues with the price, or you have a comment that you think may start controversy, then please use private message (PM).
If you don't like my description send me a PM. Never before have I seen such blatant disrespect for the rules on a forum as in this thread. Nearly all comments in this thread are from people who would have ZERO interest in buying the car regardless of the condition. SO GET THE **** OUT.

I never thought I would see so many panties get bunched up... if you all think a little bit of cutting & welding makes the car ready for scrap then you're ****ed...be a man and learn some bodywork skills. I've seen plenty of E46s with worse rust problems.

Thanks, &

I think the problem might be about going from: "It is dirty, and needs some cleaning, but is a very solid car" to "if you all think a little bit of cutting & welding makes the car ready for scrap then you're ****ed."

If you started this post with "Nice E12 in need of restoration." i highly doubt we would be having this conversation...That is just IMO.

unmolested seeing past the bird shit?? do you know what bird shit that sits on paint does to a car over time? not even a genie can take that off. eats right through the clear if there is any. the interior needs as much a cleaning as the exterior. As for as sitting? all the bushings are probably drier then a witches tit...the car needs extensive work and possible restoration due to the neglect.

the car is for parts or scrap. sorry dude..not to ahem. thread "crap" but seriously. LOL

Ah well. Here goes the thread. Thanks to those that have shown legitimate interest via PM or Kijiji.

I should clarify that it's a 1981. The parts car is an 87.

To all the shit talkers crowding this thread - it's clear that you have no interested in the car and are clearly not destined for ownership of a classic BMW.

Is your head on straight? WTF is wrong with you. If you scrap every car that has some clear coat issues... you've got some serious problems. Parts or scrap? Are you ****ed?

The interior is all together and in great shape. With a steam cleaner and some carpet cleaning solution it would look great with an hour or two of work. The wood trim is in great shape, as are the seats and dash.

If you consider this car to be needing "extensive work" then you've never had a real project car. The interior is all together, and the drivetrain is solid. The clear coat obviously has issues but that's not a huge deal. The body is in excellent shape and not rusted out like most E12s. The brakes need to be greased but anyone with any experience could have them greased and the lines bled in a few hours.

HAha electrical work? Where the hell did you pull that out from? I don't think a single one of our other 20 or so vintage BMWs has electrical issues. The older cars are very basic electronically.

This car really doesn't need that much work at all in comparison to what a lot of other E12s are like. The rear shock towers are mint, and there is minimal rust on the rest of the body.

Hahaha sure. Maybe if someone offers me $260 I should take it right?

Just because something doesn't have rare euro parts on it doesn't mean it's not collectible. This car is all original and is an excellent example of a North American E12.
