    BMW Premium Speakers Dimensions

    I'm not sure how to attach images, but I got sorted. I picked the straight back blind from Ivo and then added it to my comfort seat parcel shelf. Which then was recovered in black carpet type material. Has come out very well and looks much better than the pearl beige, should be a nice contrast against the leather. Most importantly no more speaker holes! If a set of black premium speakers pop up that will round off the look but I'll wait til I'm back to the states for work and try bag a deal on them then.

    BMW Premium Speakers Dimensions

    Thanks Ordnator and Taffy for the help. I didn't realise there was 2 different kinds of parcel shelf shapes, I learn something new every time I visit. I must go and check which I have. I suspect I have the curved as I have comfort seating and the large armrest in the center. Can the blind be transferred over despite the current shelf not having the "hump"? I assume it's possible to trim then straight edge to suit the same shape as the curved, is it? I think the premium speakers will work for what I originally set out to achieve then...covering the 6X4 holes that someone had cut in the original shelf. As I see that the premium is made up of a 5.5" speaker and a ~1" speaker/tweeter so should be at least 6.5" long and 5.5" wide. If I can figure out how to bring the sunblind into the equation now I'll be delighted! I'll report back once I check the shape of my current

    Rear Window Dealer Stickers

    I have to admit I think I used the same guy to make me one up. Good quality from what I can tell and printed on avery vinyl which is good stuff. Tempted to order a whole sticker set for the car, unless there is another source people can recommend?

    M5 front spoiler availability

    Thanks Ordnator for the heads up, luckily mine is an '87 so I'm ok on that front and it's been ordered up. Thanks again for taking the time to detail all the parts needed. Do you mind me asking, if you had your valence repainted to remove the standard anti-gravel finish or is it just the way the picture make it look? I'm tempted to do the same myself while I want for the splitter to arrive
  6. Good Afternoon All, I have a bit of a random request I was hoping to get some help with. I have some holes in my parcel shelf and although I'm on the hunt for a rear sun blind version to replace it, in the interm I thought perhaps the premium speakers would be a neat way to cover them up and enhance my e28 at the same time. If anyone has a set that they could measure roughly to give me an idea of whether this is even possible it would be greatly appreciated or dream scenario...someone here has a sunblind they are willing to sell!

    That's brilliant Mick, thanks for detailing that all out. I'll get onto the dealers tomorrow and order it up. Much happier at getting the proper one that the replicas
  8. Evening All, does anyone know if the M5 front lower spoiler is NLA or is it still available? Thought someone may already know before I pester the dealer P/N 51711935 114

    E28 springs wanted

    As per title, can be standard M20 springs. Ideally M tech or similar. Anything which is not as low as the current springs (Apex I think) thanks all for the help!
  10. Would anyone have a guide or is able to give a few pointers on how to check the sunroof drains? I'd like to keep on top of them, as so far (touch wood) I've not had any issues with them

    Rear Window Dealer Stickers

    Not sure how I missed that, thank you! Seems like it closed up or was renamed, as there doesn’t seem much information on them, but glad I’ve the above to get a sticker printed up and try restore some originality to the car

    Rear Window Dealer Stickers

    I've been trying to track down which dealer my E28 originally came from so I can get the original stickers on. I suspect it's a dealer in the greater London area based on previous owners, although plate would suggest oxford area.. Found a reference on a build spec sheet saying; Selling dealer 16277 Colv&Hench A Any ideas? Google doesn't give much

    E28 Wanted

    That is stunning but unfortunately an M5 guise would be out of my budget. Thanks for the help though! Hopefully a good one comes up soon, itching to get back into a classic BMW

    Nice to see another member from this side of the pond on here! Enjoyed reading you're thread, and hope to get into an E28 myself (hence joining). Have had and still have a few E36's and an E30 but have always loved the E28 and now is the time for one! Look forward to more updates!
