Stretch's 530d/S62 Sport Touring. Updated 14/09/19

Recommended Posts

Recent update as car has actually had some fresh air and had a wash. Seats have also been fitted and wired in. Also bought some 4 pot Porsche callipers for the rear and hopefully have a deal on some 8 pots for the front

Little update as the new plates are now on the car. Car has done over 500 trouble free miles so all looking good. I’m going to bimmerfest in Holland end of month so that will be a good road trip for it. Then it will be back off the road for the charger to be fitted. Also the new front brakes have arrived and I will be getting the rear calipers done to match ;)

You are not the only one. With different wheels this would be superb, but of course a matter of taste.

I was lucky enough to see this car in the flesh today at Vanity BMW Car Show held in the grounds of Beaulieu Motor Museum.

The detail and work gone into this car is amazing. 

Massive respect to Stretch.

Cheers guys ;) I did indeed win a trophy for being one of the top 5 cars on show so chuffed with that. 

Also seem to have got some more coverage in this. 

Also picked up my new brakes for rear 356x28mm 6 pots ;) will be refurbed to match the fronts

Thanks Stretch for some amazing inspiration, and lots of cool info. I was aware the car I had was rare, but it came with the full beige leather from factory, with a bunch of great features like double glazing and xenons, as well as original Alpina rims. The original owner was a German diplomat. Sadly, the last owner didn’t treat it right and now I’m left with slightly moldy door panels, a non functioning multifunction m steering wheel, pdc issues, a seized rear window bearing, rust,  and a bunch of issues I can’t even begin to name. I’m afraid it’s a project and it’s taken two steps into the wallet, and thrown all the money out. 
 

Was curious about your E38 rear seat upgrade, do they fold down?

 

Also,, since you’ve done such amazing work on your leather, how should one go about refurbishing the leather door panels, the tears are both slightly moldy, and the fronts are starting to crack and are caked with grease on the handle?


 

option list for my 530d
