Minor spot of rust on top right rear wheel arch and lower right front fender at the rocker. Rest of the body and floors are great. Undercarriage in great shape. Interior is near perfect. No cracks in leather, 2 minor cracks in dashboard. Garaged all it's life. Aftermarket 17" wheels with new Kumo tires. 15 years of Service records. A/C converted to r134. Was working fine till a recent vacuum leak somewhere in the HVAC system that will have to be addressed by the next owner. If you are familiar with BMW e23s you are aware of the HVAC vacuum issues they're known for. Lots of information on the internet on how to diagnose and repair. I have to many cars to devote more time to this one. Heater and defroster work fine. All other systems, Power Window, Seats, heated seats, sunroof and ABS brakes work fine. No warning lights. Drive it anywhere. I drove it on a 1500 mile round trip to Asheville NC last year with no issues.
I've owned the car since April 2017. Previous owner, a BMW enthusiast owned it 14 years and performed the turbo upgrades.Work I've done:
