So, before Christmas I decided to nip down to my local BMW specialist to grab some parts for my E9. I noticed a very dusty, forlorn E28 sitting in a corner boxed in by an E34 and an M635, and asked if it was for sale on the off chance it was. After a quick discussion with my friend we decided we should do a little project car up because....well why not?
And that's how I accidentally bought a car.
Previous owner started to strip the car for rust repair and manual conversion then sold it to the specialist (you can probably work out who it is from the pictures) and there it sat for about a year. Last on the road in 2008, lifting pads are gone, wings are rotten under the skirts, i.e. the usual places. Car is on 105k, and has had some love in the past, inner wings have been painted but look original, new shock absorbers and springs and a decent respray which unfortunately has had a rough life presumably due to the storage conditions. Found some goodies in the car such as a brand new full shadow line trim kit and an M Tec wheel, they also threw in as part of the deal a sports leather interior, Getrag 260/6 box, a spare bodykit and a decent 3.07 LSD. A half decent specced 535i, it has the SE pack so some nice goodies, cruise control, intensive wash and rear blind etc etc. At some point it had the M Tech kit installed, and a silver 535 was stripped down and used for the good bits.
Who said verts aren't practical?
The end of a very long day, car still not at home but work began cleaning up the alleyway and garage at my mates house to store the 5.
