1985 BMW 524td

With the of the 335d, X5 xDrive35d, we should back to where the BMW diesel began, with the E28 5 series and the M21 2.4 turbo diesel. Here is a preserved example with miles for sale in Ohio.

This is my 1985 BMW 524td Turbo sedan with only original miles. This is beautifully made and high-performance BMW Diesel sedan. This is one of the nicest 524td models for anywhere in the country, if you can even another one.

There are only a few hundred of these still in existance.

At the time, was the quickest-accelerating, fastest and QUIETEST vehicle made in the world. Not to the superb fuel economy, reliablity and sports-car handling. car would run circles around the diesels, the trucklike coffee-grinder pipsqueak slowpoke VW diesels and the bad GM diesel 350s.

I am a specialty/classic car dealer and I have searching for one of these elusive BMW for years. I have put quite a few on the car and I really love this This was the best diesel in the world when it was made, and I been very impressed how this car compares to modern cars. This 524td is QUICK- it accelerates very and runs along on the freeway at mph without breaking a sweat.

The is outstanding- my everyday car is a 2002 BMW (gas), and this 26-year old BMW will keep up with it in easily out-handles the modern car and the pants off it in fuel economy. experience with fuel ranges from about 33 mpg to the 40#8242;s. A lady I met who owns one of claims to get 45 mpg.

This car is than the reputation it carries, is already pretty darn This diesel engine is the most free-revving diesel I have ever experienced. It has none of the traditional diesel at idle, and once you#8217;re you would never know there#8217;s an oil-burner under the

The torque is excellent, and the responsiveness is You put your foot down, and old gal really hustles. When I why they didn#8217;t sell of these when they new, I#8217;m reminded they were incredibly at time when most experience with diesel involved smoky Oldmobiles and Rabbits#8230;

This car was previously owned by the of a BMW repair shop, whose daughter drove the car every He has serviced the car for the past 10+ years- he it from a customer of his who moved out of and sold him the car. This car has used and driven EVERY It is 100% reliable and dependable and it has no mechanical problems.

All of the service has been kept up, and I most all the service records for the life of the vehicle- pages and of recent records plus stamped in the owner#8217;s manual up to 1999. I would trust car to drive cross-country with no

The engine is smooth and powerful, and the boosts well. The tranmission perfectly, and the brakes are great. The is tight and stable, with no rattles or sloppiness.

The steering is and there are handling is outstanding- car handles like a sports no joke.

The paint and body are gorgeous. are no exterior flaws of any significance- car looks beautiful. The paint is and in superb condition, and there any dings or dents. The aluminum are in great shape and the tires are new.

The car has not been in any known

The interior is amazing- the seats and are beautifully clean and in great There is one tiny rip in the driver#8217;s As mentioned, the air conditioning works and blows ice-cold.

This is a 26 old car, and of course there are few to mention. One of the foglights is cracked. The antenna is broken, but the radio tunes in stations fine.

The locks work, but only the passenger side and trunk. The plugs work fine, it occasionally take a few seconds of to start the car- in the owner#8217;s it states that it can take up to 40 though it has never taken long for me. It also has two leaks, the is the fuel tank which has a leak at the seam.

It only leaks when is more than 2/3 of a tank of The second leak is at a seal in the pump. It has had this same for 6 years and it has never gotten any and the car still drives perfectly.

If the BMW owner wasn#8217;t worried to fix it, then neither am I. However he it is a pretty straightforward fix and I could have him fix both leaks for the new for a couple hundred bucks. that couple hundred buys a lot of diesel fuel!

is a clean, outstanding, beautiful BMW I can bet that you will not find a one for sale anywhere. I love car, and so will the new owner.

I was by the seller#8217;s thorough description and pictures. This is an example of how to do an auction right. It#8217;s rare to see any E28 diesel for sale, and one is quite possibly the best one come across in a while, as were very few of these sold in the US.

Interestingly enough, Lincoln this very engine in and 1985 in a handful of Continental and to counter Cadillac and their offerings.

I think it#8217;s amusing, and somewhat sad, about 25 years on, most this size struggle to get the of fuel economy this returned. While I#8217;ve driven one of these, from I#8217;ve read, they to be a more sporty alternative to the common Mercedes-Benz diesels of the I#8217;d surely take 5er over a hybrid any day, considering the repairs one would be at over the course of ownership.
