    Ahh, more comfy shoes...

    Swapped over my puny 205 winters to some more appropriate rubber.







    12mm spacers all around to fill the wheel wells better. Lowered on fronts with ST (old stock but brand new) springs. Rear with stock SLS but readjusted (needs more low).
    225/55/16 on E38 Style 5's with ET23 offset.

    a lot of times, stock is best ;) they are the factory 16x7.5 basketweaves ("cross-spokes" in official bmw parlance).

    I love E28's, and period correct-ness to an extent. The only thing that impedes my wood, are the seats. Besides that, l <3.

    These are the only 2 (poor) pics I have of my newly acquired, since December anyway, 520iT.

    Build date 05/96, OrientBlau Metallic/Black Leather, double squeaky sunroof, they ordered the extra flat comfort seats too. BTW it's on H&R 45/15mm & Lowtec Sport dampers in the front.

    Here it is on 15" BBS weaves:



    And shortly after on 16" E39 Weaves, drove on them for about 2 days, went back to the 15's. It felt quicked/lighter on the 15's, and they look better.


    i'll have ot update my project thread, it's had a few upgrades and fixes since I bought it. Even though it's slightly underpowered, it makes a fine daily. I was considering using an extra 2.0l block/pistons I have in the basement, along with a 2.5L crank/rods and making a super-low buck 2.3l stroker ....a little extra tq would help a bit.

    My good friend owned the car for several years until it was totaled. It was such a shame to see that car go. It was a pretty nasty accident.

    Here is the most recent picture I have of it:
