looking at a 1987 635csi

Hi all, I am new here.

I have seen a BMW 653csi, 1987 today and wanted a quick bit of advice.

The car is in very good condition for age, advertised at £1650 from a private seller. The seller is very knowledgeable and has driven BMWs for years.

Before he owned it the car had a respray which wasn’t brilliant, there are a couple of dull bits but not instantly noticeable. There are a few very minor blemishes on the alloys and a small amount of rust on one wing, easily manageable.

The interior is solid, good leather, small blemish on the drivers seat but otherwise lovely, the carpets and footwells are immaculate with no signs of damp.

Electrics all work as does the ABS and sunroof etc. There are a couple of small cracks in the dash and one of the fans doesn’t work.

Engine is sound, no oily smells and looks clean. I am yet to have a look under the car but the chap tells me that the exhaust may need some attention.
The drive is solid and the acceleration is as you would expect with no drag either side, the ride feels stern, again as you would expect.

There is a full size spare alloy and a full bmw tool kit, jack etc, no 1st aid kit though! Full manual, some history with a number of parts replaced at 80k, currently on 88k.

Does anyone else think this is a decent deal or should I avoid given the bits that need attention?

I would really appreciate your input. thanks Tony
