Description 1988 535i - E28 - M30 - TCD Turbo

Entusiasts only!I've owned this car since 2007.  I bought it with 140,570 miles on the odometer and the car has been garage kept since I've owned it.  

The car has a 5-speed manual transmission and a turbocharged 3.4L inline 6. I have been running Mobil 1 15w-50 and Rislone Zinc supplement.
The engine runs great.  It does require 93 octane.  I'm looking to sell to make room in the garage as I have recently become addicted to motorcycles.

I have put a lot of money into the turbo and other parts and I know I will not get that out of the car, so I'm listing it for $7500.  The turbo kit alone goes for $3400.
Here are some known issues that may not be obvious in photos:  This is probably not an all inclusive list but it's everything that comes to mind. Steering feels loose and could use new ball joints
Body has some rust
A/C needs recharge.  It was emptied for the turbo install.  A/C worked before that.
Power mirrors need repair (broken spring in gear mechanism - google)
Passenger power headrest needs repair (common problem - google it)
Power windows are a little slow.  Probably fixed by cleaning and re-greasing gears
Clutch pedal engagement point moves around.  (likely the master or slave cylinder)
Needs heater valve repair (common - google)
Brake liner and ABS lights are on.  probably broken wires and/or sensors, I have not investigated.
Rear diver side arm rest is black not red like the rest of the interior..
Dash is cracked, of course Here are the things I've added/replaced/upgraded, with mileage at time of service in parentheses: New Battery (1-2 months ago) TCD Stage 1 turbo kit (173,732)
