*Repeat Visitor* Schwarz Black over Natural Tan Leather, Absolutely Stunning, First Generation M5! This car is what all E28 enthusiasts dream of! A properly fitted Euro-bumper E28 M5 with Dinan Enhancements! This special car was originally purchased in 1987 by George Wendt; aka: Norm Peterson from the hit TV Series ‘Cheers’. He owned and enjoyed the vehicle for the first 60K miles, then sold the car to a fellow California resident in 2002. Later in 2009, this M5 underwent a full exterior restoration and thorough Euro conversion including front + rear bumpers, headlamps, grills, complete reupholstered interior with OEM leather, manual front seats, rear headrests, euro dash with center vent and refinished 16” BBS OEM basket weave wheels. This vehicle is an outstanding driver-quality example, not quite concours condition, but still manages to impress all BMW fans and fellow car enthusiasts. Performance has been improved with a Euro exhaust header mated with a full length Supersprint exhaust system and managed by a Dinan engine performance chip. Additional Performance Upgrades include a Dinan Stage 2 Suspension with larger front + rear sway bars, Dinan front strut tower brace, HMS rear shock tower brace, AP Racing 4-piston front brakes, E34 M5 rear brake calipers and a 3.73 Euro M6 large case limited slip differential. This is the ultimate driver’s M5 with a genuine Euro M5 appearance! The condition of this vehicle is impressive! The exterior paint retains a beautiful finish with few minor flaws or imperfections. All body panels have VIN tags intact. The interior is well-preserved with supple leather, clean carpets and no significant wear areas. The leather dash panel is in great shape with no abnormalities, cracks or signs of age. This M5 lived in California up until 2011 when it had 78K miles and then relocated with the next Enthusiast in Oklahoma where it was only enjoyed during nice weather. Never seen winter conditions, therefore, the body and undercarriage are completely rust-free. This car will impress all vintage BMW enthusiasts! In 2019 at 87K miles, EAG completed our Comprehensive Pre-Purchase Inspection and Full Rejuvenation Program ensuring this vehicle is turn-key in every aspect! Highlights Included a Complete 10-year Service with all new fluids and filters, water pump, engine drive belts, shifter linkage rebuild and new Michelin Pilot Exalto tires. At that time we also performed a 60+ hour exterior paint correction / protection process with ceramic coating. This M5 will complete a second round of EAG Inspections and another round through our full Rejuvenation Program prior to delivery to the next loving Enthusiast. Compression test results, detailed undercarriage photos, condition details and historical documents are all on file and available to interested buyers. This car is will make a fantastic addition to any collection or could be enjoyed as a low-annual mileage driver! Clean Vehicle History Report with No Accidents and No Issues. Responsibly Adult Owned, Garage-Kept, Non-Smoker.
