BMW E34 535i SE


Built to take on the mighty Mercedes W124 E Class, the E34 5 Series not only rose to the challenge but arguably beat Mercedes at their own game, with superb ride quality and road-holding along with that wonderful BMW driver-focussed layout.

This beautiful 1989 535i SE has just 75k miles and full main dealer service history is in beautiful condition throughout.

Finished in Zinnoberrot Red, the bodywork is superb and still holds a deep shine while the upgraded BBS wheels are in wonderful condition.

Being an SE model, the interior boasts rear headrests, 4 electric windows, electric sunroof, electric mirrors, leather steering wheel and gear knob, and grey cloth seats with individual front armrests which are still like new. The original overmats are still present, too, and the dash is crack-free.

These E34s are known for being rewarding to drive, too, something that is helped by the legendary M30 3.5 6-cylinder engine which offers a wonderful soundtrack, superb reliability and plenty of power.

Complete with two sets of keys, original owner’s handbook and a fully stamped service book including invoices. This is one of the best available today.


Warranty included. Finance available.

Additional information










We are delighted to present this stunning one owner from new 1989 BMW 535i SE for sale. This is an absolutely beautiful example with huge full main dealer BMW service history and only 74k miles from new. Presented in Zinobert with upgraded grey cloth interior, this was a serious piece of kit back in the day.

The bodywork on this car is in lovely original condition with no signs of rust whatsoever. The car has been recently detailed and the bodywork still holds a deep shine. Personally, I love Zinobert, and the paint on this car is in excellent condition. This is one of the best E34 BMW’S we have seen to date. Being a 535i is also quite nice as they are much rarer in the ground.

As for the interior, the car looks as though it has only left the factory. The car still smells like a period BMW should. The seats are mark free and the car still retains its original over mats. The dash board is crack free and the head-cloth is excellent.

Mechanically she is absolutely spot on. Having just has a full service with ourselves including water pump, battery, plugs, cap, leads and rotor. The tappets on this car are whisper quiet. The auto box changes lovely and the 3.5 litre straight six engine still pulls effortlessly.

Being the SE model the car comes with upgraded seats including front arm rests. Electric windows, mirrors and sun roof which all work perfectly. Complete with two sets of keys, original owners handbook and a fully stamped service book including invoices. This is one of the best available today.
