1985 528e for adoption...what's it worth?

I have an '85 E28 that's been in the family since day 1 with 206K original kilometers (128K miles)...yes, I'm from the great white north. I've run out of room to store it (I have to make room for my wife's Honda CRV) and no time to enjoy this classic ride. Regretfully I must sell it but would like some feedback as to what a reasonable selling price should be. It's a 5 speed that's all original including the paint. I have the service records and even the original bill of sale from July 1985. Everything works including the A/C. It has a cloth interior that is in immaculate condition as the seats have always been covered. Original floor mats and even the spare tire. Has always been parked in a garage since day 1. Full synthetics for the tranny, diff and oil. Complete set of winter and summer tires/rims...summers (Michelin X) next to new have 7K miles on them. Alpine head unit but the original Blaupunkt cassette stereo is available.

Minor rust behind driver's front tire and by driver's door molding.

Photo of the bimmer from last summer attached.

Appreciate any member's feedback.

It's really a very nice car, but your location gives you less potential buyers than someone in a big metropolitan area. Try asking $5000 and list in the various BMW forums. Many BMW enthusiasts would love to own one, especially since they are getting rarer all the time.
