    M535i Rear Bumper Parts

    Ivo Christov in the Netherlands https://www.e28.nl/en/ carries most E28 bumper parts in his webshop https://www.e28.nl/en/webshop-bmw-parts/ I have had a couple of his front and rear bumper fixing packs in the past as well as a "No Longer Available" front left hand chrome bumper piece. Top bloke, honest seller, E28 nut, wholeheartedly Recommended. Regards, Mick

    Are these wheels genuine?

    Hi Stephen, These are genuine BMW items. Used on the E34 5 series, E24 6 series and E32 7 series. They were also popular as a retrofit to the earlier E28 5 series. They take readily available main stream imperial sized tyres so were a popular, period correct, alternative to the TRX rim with metric tyre, which are expensive today and have poorer handling characteristics by today's standards. The wheel (item 1) part number is 36.11.1.179.774 and is a 7 inch wide x 15 inch diameter rim 7J15H2. The cap (item 3) is part number 36.13.1.179.828. 5' E34 535i Cross-spoke styling (styl.5) Select another car > Wheels > Light alloy rim No. Description Supp. Qty From Up To Part Number Price Notes Advertisement 01 Light alloy rim 7JX15 ET:20 4 36111179774 $248.95 ENDED, ABE 9781838, ABE 9782147, ABE 9783735 02 Wheel bolt black M12X1,5 X 36131095390 $2.80 ENDED 02 Wheel bolt black M12X1,5 X 36136781150 $3.21 03 Hub cap 4 36131179828 $15.75 04 Rubber valve L=42,5MM 4 36121116326 $3.30 05 Valve 4 36141095389 $1.38 06 Valve caps 4 36121120779 $0.60 07 Hub cap wrench SW80 1 36131179325 $9.12 08 Hub cap wrench SW=17MM 1 36131180626 $8.82 09 Clip 1 36131180138 $3.68 10 BMW insignia stamped with adhesive film D=70MM 4 36136758569 $5.92 11 Light alloy rim 7JX15 ET:20 4 36119061377 ENDED Notes ENDED = the part has been discontinued (no longer available).

    E28 Door Window Fixings - What Glue to use?

    Went to exchange the clear rear drivers door glass to green but had to conduct a little more JB Weld action on the glass securing brackets first Had to leave it to fully cure for a couple of days as it's -20 outside at the moment . The garage is heated but not that heated . Impressed with JB Weld though . Enjoy your weekend. Regards, Mick

    Wanted E28 Shadow Line Trim

    I am converting the Zobelbraun Eta from Chrome to Shadow Line trim. Some of the trim is no longer available so I am looking for some new old stock or good quality second hand trim as follows: 1. 51.31.1.959.726 - Moulding Lower Schwartz (Front windscreen lower trim shadow line). 2. 51.31.1.959.998 - Moulding Lower Schwartz (Rear windscreen lower trim shadow line). 3. 51.13.1.959.985 - Moulding Roof Left Schwartz (Left roof gutter trim shadow line). 4. 51.13.1.959.986 - Moulding Roof Right Schwartz (Right roof gutter trim shadow line). If you have some in your secret stash that you are willing to part with then give me a shout, cash waiting. Thank you for looking. Enjoy your weekend. Regards, Mick
  10. I am converting the Zobelbraun Eta from Chrome to Shadow Line trim. Some of the trim is no longer available so I am looking at re-finishing the chrome trim with a satin black finish. I am not the first person to do this so what have others done to resolve this and how difficult / successful were you? My initial idea is either powder coat or paint, but open to other solutions. Any advice or guidance both good and bad would be much appreciated. Thank you for looking. Enjoy your weekend. Regards, Mick

    What have you done on your E28 this week........

    On the Zobelbraun Eta, I changed the driver side rear door glass from clear to green, replaced the window guides and all weather seals, removed chrome window trim and replaced with shadow line, removed the chrome door side mouldings and replaced with shadow line door side mouldings: Also found the cause of the window motor not working, this plug to the motor was dis-connected : All motors, mechanisms and linkages lubricated and working like a well oiled Swiss watch All clear door glass now replaced with green sun dim glass, along with new seals, guides , shadow line trim and door mouldings. Next up is to fit some Dynamat to the inside of the door skins and replace the door liner foam with some Dynamat before replacing the vapour barrier and replacing the door cards. Regards, Mick

    What have you done on your E28 this week........

    Hi Dan, Sorry, keeping then for the Bronzitbeige Eta when it comes back from body refurbishment and paint. The Zobelbraun Eta appears to have been garage kept for most of its 89,000 miles as the chrome trims are still fairly straight and shinny. The Bronzitbeige Eta however, has been an outdoor car so has faded and dull chrome which has a real "lived-in" look. The last time I checked all of the door moulding chrome trims were still available and all but one of the window chrome trims were too. Regards, Mick

    On the Zobelbraun Eta, I changed the passenger side front door glass from clear to green, replaced the window guides and all weather seals, removed chrome window trim and replaced with shadow line, removed the chrome door side mouldings and replaced with shadow line door side mouldings: Then did the same on the front drivers side door: Just the rear drivers side door left to change.
