BMW E28 fever

So last august i purchased my first e28 (not first BMW by a long way) it was very tired but was a great base. 1985 528i Manual with M30B35 already installed. Since then i have put spax shock, eibach springs, braided brake likes, rewired the engine bay, installed a good carpet, removed aircon and installed a non aircon centre console, new brakes etc. Picture below:

then a couple of weeks ago i decided i needed a daily driver. This ended up being a white 520 auto. this was it when i first got it.

i have replaced brakes, alternator, centre bearing, fuse box cover, replaced worn out front seats with e34 comfort seats and massive cut and polish and just general maintenance. Will be going on the road next week. Still needs door and rear painted but for now it will do.

The silver one has been done very tastefully. I like it! Both look like really good specimens and kudos for rescuing them.

Cheers Mate

The silver one has had a heap of stuff thrown at it.

Ebitah springs, spax shock, braided brake hoses, M30B35 engine, uprated sway bars etc etc.

The white one is bog standard 520i. will be my daily driver.
