e28 535is worth? buying back from the ex
I've just re-registered with this fine forum. I believe I used the username "Stormy" before but its been awhile. I live in Orlando and currently drive a 1990 535i - Glacier Blue, lowered w/Style 5's.
Several years ago I gave up my 1988 535is to my ex. Now that she can't maintain it (and never could), she is ready to "give" it up. I was wondering what a fair price would be (although she SHOULD just give it back). I don't have a picture right now but here is a description:
1988 535is - silver & mostly stock
mileage - unknown, odometer quit @ 160K - likely well over 200K
front and rear spoilers (stock)
the killer electric seats
style 33 wheels
1 very slight ding by the passenger front parking light
paint - top VERY faded w/clearcost peeling, sides look real good
interior - above average but badly cracked dash
barely working sound system
The car runs great but the transmission is acting up - after researching it is most likely the speed sensor(s). Her description is it has trouble deciding what gear it wants to be in over 50 MPH. It also needs exhaust work.
So, can anyone throw a ballpark figure out there as to what this car is worth? I threw $1K out there to her at one point but now I'm having 2nd thoughts.... Also I am currently laid off so that is a factor as far as dumping tons of money into it.
Thanks and Happy Holidays everyone!
