It is a cracker, worth spending the money on. 

Couple of quick pics, I'll get some decent photos when the suns out!

Looks great and also has the greatest of all E28 steering wheels. Shame they dont do a fine spline one.   

 

 

On it from new too, I have the original Invoice.

Wow,

 

That looks like it came straight from the show room in 1981 :cool:

 

Is that a special "motor Show" prepared model or does it just have most of the original optional extra boxes ticked from new.

 

Where did you find this fine car?

 

Thank you for sharing and brightening up a dull winters day.

 

Looking forward to more pictures.

 

Regards,

 

Mick

Thanks for the kind words Mick, it certainly is one of the nicest spec'd E28's I've ever seen. 

What I love most is that it's completely original, still retains all the factory fit extras.

Though its a shame they didnt spec a LSD.

 

100%, have to say though it's about as close to my perfect spec as I'm ever going to find.

LSD and the recaro leather sports seats and it would of been perfect.

Finding a set of recaro seats may be more difficult but not impossible.  They come up for sale in Europe every now and again.

 

Then have them recovered to match your interior.

 

Nothing wrong with making it your own from the parts bin, as if you were in the showroom 36 years ago :cool:

 

It is your car to do with as you please, and in a way that pleases you.

 

Outstanding survivor car.

 

Regards,

 

Mick

That really is a stunning car. Beautiful and original and deserves to remain how Bavaria intended. With one of mine I’ve just fitted a few factory options that could of been ordered at the time of build also.  More pics please !

Recaro seats £374

LSD £284

 

But as always, where do you stop with options. 

 

You stop when you have your perfect car, how you like it and how you would have specced it if you had won the pools / lottery in 1983 :cool:

 

Just an idea...:wink:

 

Regards,

 

Mick

Something period and factory that you can bolt in and out just as easy I see as only an opportunity.  The sports seats will always sell on after you’ve plonked the originals back in. I have the leather sport seats in my 528i, they look great but all they do is bloody squeak to be honest and it drives me mad. But each to their own and as long you can always go back to original there’s no harm done. 

Love the Pioneer head unit, do you have the TS-466 speakers too ?

Can't say I ever felt that. Did Newcastle and back in a day in mine once, a 550m round trip.

6'2ft, and 15.5 stone, maybe it's an age thing, I used to be 12.5st years ago, and the seats alot more comfy then.
