    Default Bmw 520i - E28 1987

    Hi there people on Stance works, my name is Mattias and i live in Sweden, i thought i should share my build with you guys.

    My Imgserver is down so all my pics a fucked for the moment... =(

    BMW 520i E28 1987 and its my baby, this gonna be my summer cruising car when its done...

    The history of this car i quite unique, i bought it at a car dealer that had it as a sell object for an old man, born 1923, i went to look at the car and i was blown away the car is in mint condition, the old man had bought it new back in 1987, it had 150000km on the clock. I got full case of papers, all the Swedish MOT papers since the car was new, not even a notice in so many years, i even got a copy of the check he bought the car for.. HaHaHa

    Havent done anything really, just installed some speakers and a new cd player, thats about it.
    Im in the starting point of installing some lowering coils, i have done one spring out of four, HaHaHa that was all i hade time to do, its hard juggeling work, kids and a wife with garage time...

    My plans for the JAWS is coilovers when i can afford it, maybe to next winter, ill put the lowering coils on this winter and ride it like that for now, I have a set of wheels "Last pic" that i tested out this summer, but i couldent ride with them, need to roll the wheel arches before i can fit them again without rubbing, they measure 9" in the front and 10" in the back



    Thats all for now...

    Heres a setup with another set of wheels 18 x 8.5" and with the lowering coils on, fits prefect, but the wheels aint in the best shape





    I bought some secondhand tail lights and tinted them, but im now sure if im gonna keep them like that or do something else.
    Some new black paint front to back, and some subtle tailpipe´s. Removed the head light washer for a more cleener look










    Some tail light mods






    And here is a pic of the spoiler im waiting on..






    Thats about it for now... Cheers guys

    Sweet rides, the Bimmer is soooo clean. Don't modifying too much make it OEM+ I guess.

    Thanks Suburuuh!

    My plans for this car is a superchargered m30b28 engine that i got for free, the engine is gonna be a side project for now, im gonna tear it apart and look it over and renovate it and change up some parts in it and build a supercharger setup over this summer and maybe get it in the car next winter.

    Im gonna keep modifying the car as it goes, just small subtile changes...

    Prio one right now is rolling the fenders so i can fit my wheels without rub
    The license plate lights have been changed to led
    I have changed the parkinglights to led in both high/low headlihgts, im gonna do a nice clean led foglight install to match the parkinglights, im also gonna change the high/lowbeam lamps to Bi xonenlamps for better light.

    I bought a pair of old front struts that im gonna build some coilovers with..

    The engine plan sounds good, but keep it (literally) under the hood! Sleeper style!

    I'm not a fan on leds in older cars, but it's your build

    Wish I could get a grip on the garaget.org site, I guess there's so much to see and read....
    My Swedish isn't bad, it's just ugly *lol*.
