    Hey Rich, Nice plan B. Happy to see you found a classic that met your requirements. The W126 is also from the era when German cars were built to a standard rather than a budget. Do you have any more pictures that you can share? Best regards, Mick

    https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1199539 Just viewed the "Duke of London" updated photographs which now include some interior shots and this car also has the following options: Electric windows front and rear, air conditioning, fog lights front and rear, M-Tec 1 steering wheel (coarse spline), front door mounted tweeters by the side mirrors, higher end speakers in the front foot wells (may well be some form of premium sound system), front comfort seats armrests, Front seat base height adjustment (front and rear) for both driver and passenger seats, on board computer 1 and the ultra retro rear window sticker "The Ultimate Driving Machine". Best regards, Mick

    Jez, Good luck with your investigations. Your conclusions could well potentially be of benefit to many other E28 curators with Euro bumper issues. Best regards, Mick

    E28 Back Bumper Centre Section

    Hi Jez, Ivo Christov was having euro bumper remanufactured in Spain a couple of years back. If I remember correctly he was having them supplied in both chrome and primer. https://www.ebay.com/str/ivochristovbmwe28specialist Try giving Ivo a call as I expect the stock from his first buy will most likely be sold by now, but he may have a re-supply in the pipeline. A couple of guys in Latvia and Russia have been selling second hand Euro bumper parts on "myE28.com" recently so that might be another potential lead. Best regards, Mick

    E28 Additional Slider Valve Part No. 11531287303

    Hi Joe, RealOEM shows this part as "Ended" so most likely no longer available from the main stealers TryTims on here / timothy97 on ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/timothy97?_trksid=p2047675.l2559 or Ivo Christov in the Netherlands https://www.e28.nl/en/ Both specialise in E28 parts. Europe is your best bet for 520i parts as this model did not officially make it across the pond to North America, except as a grey import. Have a close look at your original part and see if you can identify an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), supplier to BMW, as this could be a potential solution if the OEM still stocks / supports this item. May well have been used by other car manufacturers of the era. German ebay can also be a good source of parts. Good luck with your search.
