    E28 Part Manufacturers

    Hi, Some may think “bit of an odd question” but I’ve been wondering for a while now what manufacturers used to make parts for the E28 and BMW in the 1980s ? Who made brake components ? (ATE i know of) Batteries ? What tyre make did E28s roll out the factory on ? Headlamps ? (Hella) Exhaust system ? Spoilers ? (Pfeba?) Anything really ? Cheers.

    E28 Metal Fuel Tank Petrol Filler Cap

    Hi, i havent because I assumed they would only sell the later plastic type. That may be a bit naive on my part. I’ll try tomorrow. Cheers.
  8. Hi Does anybody have a mint or new metal type fuel filler cap for an E28 that they would part with / for sale ? Has to be absolutely mint or new. See photos for type. Thanks in advance Jez

    ‘86 E28 528i Clutch Kit

    Hi I'm really struggling to locate a clutch kit for my 528i. I’ve tried quite a few motor factors but to no avail. eBay UK Germany etc but dubious as part numbers don’t seem to be entirely correct and don’t want a fight for my money back. Main Dealers don’t do the kit anymore and it’s price is extortionate anyway. Certain tuning websites like Demon Tweeks etc do upgraded stuff but I just want a Sachs or LuK if possible. Any advice welcome? Thanks.

    Any 528i’s for sale??

    You should read my last post on this car the last time it was up for sale. Yes it has mysteriously returned again. I think the seller has been a bit more honest with his description this time to be fair http://forum.bmw5.co.uk/topic/131142-e28-528i-on-ebay/

    E28 528i on ebay

    Interesting one this - wish I’d seen this thread earlier. I knew a previous owner of this car and have personally seen it in the flesh about 2 years ago. It’s very original - had all paperwork and items from the main dealer in Woking, Surrey where it was first sold. The car was owned locally by a wealthy gentleman but eventually he replaced it and literally left it standing in his drive. It lived underneath a bed of moss for years on end until a guy who worked for the wealthy gentleman asked what he was ever going to do with it. The guy was offered the car for free so he took it ! Shortly after the car changed hands, it was given a clean up and put up for sale in Aylesbury i think it was. This is when I saw it. An ex friend purchased it and I went with him to buy it. The car, because of its moss overcoat, never had an ounce of lacquer left on it. The whole thing was down to the paint. It had a few dings here and there, somebody had smashed a rear window , glass was everywhere in nooks and crannies and the replacement glass was a different colour to the rest. It had quite a few other issues too and was very tatty. It was solid though - weirdly no rust anywhere on it ! We tried to drive it back to Eastbourne but every time it got hot the engine died. A nightmare which resulted in it eventually being rescued on a recovery truck. Anyway, the engine was rebuilt, an attempt on the paint was made, a few bits done here and there but then the car became unloved again and was to be sold on. I then fell out with my then friend who owned it - The car was going to go to a Ford restorers in Eastbourne as a project for the business owner but whether it did I don’t know. Obviously at this point I never heard of it again - would be interesting to hear of what the new owner thinks of his purchase because that was a lot of money for what once was a very tired car - a solid car, but needed a lot of work. I just hope the photos on eBay were a true representation of it now current condition as it did look a heck of a lot better !
