E28 527i / very special car

Recommended Posts

A beautiful and very unique E28 525e in Dolphin Grey, with Pearl Beige leather M-sports interior. This is my second E28 and I've owned it for over 8 years in which time it has had in excess of £20,000 spent transforming it's appearance, performance and handling. It breaks my heart to have to part with it, but with two daughters at University I have to re-think my finances and pack my toys away for a few years! 

Dolphin grey.
Steel sunroof.
M5 wheel arches.
Alpina front spoiler.
M5 rear spoiler.
Spotless 17” x 8 Alpinas on 235/45/17s.

E34 530i V8 brakes / EBC red stuff pads with braided lines.
M5 replica lowered springs (Fritz) with Bilstein B4s.
Blueprinted engine rebuild (3,000 miles ago)

ITB kit with plenum.
Augment Automotive ECU / stand-alone engine management.
Complete Fritz stainless system with custom 6-branch manifold.



This is no DIY project – all work has been undertaken by Fritz’s Bitz over the last 8 years with bills c. £20k. The body shell has covered 206,000 miles, but in my ownership I have replaced pretty much every mechanical component with new or re-built parts. Never had any major welding. Most bushes replaced, rear sub-frame mounts done, had the drive shaft balanced and new giubo fitted. The car has a history file containing every bill and receipt from new. BMW car magazine feature back in 2011. 

It's been garaged and pampered and only used on sunny days and weekends. It's a real one-off, makes an awesome sound and is the most enjoyable drive I've ever owned. If the Alpina look isn't for you, the front spoiler unbolts in 5 minutes, and the alloys will fetch a few bob on ebay, so it can easily be re-invented for it's next chapter of ownership.


Really keen for this to go to a good home, to be appreciated and enjoyed. Priced at £12,995.

The company who re-padded the front seats supplied them. Kit came with heating element for both parts of seat + switches. German manufacturer – can't remember the name though. One of the best mods I made!
