Everything on this car has been fully sorted and updated to the highest
standards. This is one of the best driving E28’s on the road and turns quite
a few heads. This car has resided in Arizona and California since new; very
clean body + undercarriage with no rust or corrosion.
I purchased this Hotrod from P.O. while being stored for a year at Vintage
MotorSport Group in Duarte, a. owner renown BMW restorer Ron Perry.
While in Ron’s shop, e removed the M-Technique kit and installed a new
Euro sheet metal valance, ull set of Euro chrome bumpers then, dded a
new NLA Euro M5 chin spoiler. This completed the transformation. Ron fit a
set of New NLA chrome mirrors and door handles from an e12 chassis.
It wasn’t running right down on power. I brought the car to Church
Automotive Testing in Wilmington, a. They had the Autronic software –
downloaded and worked their magic – the baseline was so far off. Jerry
tuned the car and performed as many as 20 DYNO runs pulling the car to
6800-7000rpm’s each with another minor tweek. A/F mixture & timing. Took
it out for a quick drive - A completely different car – Pulled so strong in 1st
& 2nd gear Spun the 17” tires. Impressive numbers on the Dyno.
Documented. The clutch slave got stuck – forcing us to pull the Getraggearbox – while out inspection of the clutch showed signs of wear – I
installed a new Sachs HD Clutch Pack – PP, OB, ilot bearing,
Resurfaced 14lb M5 flywheel. Rear main seal, lutch master, lutch slave,
UUC short shift kit. Checked suspension – Installed new Meyle OE rear
subframe bushings, ogbones and Rebuilt CV axles. Adjustable front sway
bar links ends.
The interior got a makeover – New leather dashboard, eather door caps,
black headliner. Interior shows new. Installed a BMW OE Siega shaded
glass with break’in sticker. Even got the headlight wiper/washer functions
working – neat! I refinished a set on M-System 8x17 alloys with new
235/45/17 ZR rated tires. Incredible stereo system – a concert hall sound.
Lighted ///M leather shift knob, ecovered M-Technic steering wheel in
Napa leather with ///M Tri-color stitch. Even the glovebox flashlight works.
Another Euro joint project forces sale –I have enjoyed this car and logged
over 500 trouble-free miles. Professional appraised for $36,200. The
vehicle carries a clean history report and all service build documentation (3
ring binder) is included for the next caretaker. For more information; Please
