    518i owner says hi

    Hallo, I currently drive an e28 518i lux. I know snobs will probably look down on it for only having a tiny M10 it but, as I use it for my daily and cruising around town, it's probably the best option for me! Plans include Style 61 wheels [if I can find some], keeping rusty bits in check and getting it through winter in one peice. I help run the BMW Fans UK facebook page, but my BMW knowledge is by no means encyclopaedic, so I'm hoping the folk on here will be able to help with questions and queries from time to time. I've attached a pic of my car. Cheers, Neal

    My E28 518i

    Hello, This is a brief history of my little 518i. My dad bought a 520i LUX new in 1985, and owned and looked after it until 2003 when it was written off. Front right damage, bonnet and wing badly crumpled, chassis damage, written off. It was the only car I ever knew growing up and he'd always planned on giving it to me when I was old enough to drive. When I passed my test, he wanted to buy me a car, so he got me one. It isn't the colour I'd choose, and it's only a 518i, but I was only 17 so it was better than what most people had. I love it and have had a lot of fun in it. It's got a lot of character and I've got used to all its little quirks. It's an '88 reg and only had 84,000 miles on it when I got it in Spring 2009, and I took it through 100,000 miles a while back. We've repaired it when necessary even though we've spent several times the purchase cost in fixing it up. A few months ago I had the wings replaced. This: Became this: I wanted it looking nice for its 25th birthday, which was 4 weeks ago tomorrow. The wings and the nose is the best looking part of the E28. However, yesterday, this happened: Full scale of internal damage is unknown so we're not sure if it's finally had it or if we'll be able to save it one more time. Will be a shame if it's too far gone as it was a good friend.
