    Just thought I'd say hi! I'm a fan of BMWs old and new, but with my modern daily car box ticked for now what I'm looking for is an E28 to take out on the many sunny weekends we get up here in Lancashire :hihi Why the E28? Essentially, as I child I always admired it, and perhaps as a result of...

    Hi all! We've got a small car service station in Russia, and a big dream - the legendary BMW Racing car from 1970-s, the E9 Batmobile.

    So after a few years away from BMW ownership, having previously owned two e30's and an e46 I recently bought a 1987 520 E28 which is in great condition and has been looked after meticulously throughout its life (stark contrast to the MK2 Scirocco I've been driving for three years). Anyway. The...

    Hi, I have just got myself an BMW 525e. It had been stood up for a little while approx. 8 months I think. There are two main faults with the car which I'm wondering if they could be connected or totally separate. The rev counter and MPG needle does not work and the transmission light is on...

    Hi everyone.. I'm new here but have been enjoying e28 ownership and daily driving for a couple of months now. My 528 is cold!

    Joined ages ago but never posted (I think) My name is David (45), and I am about to buy an E28 520i which I will have (IMO) tatefully modified to my liking to end up as my retro daily - I only do 2-3k miles a year so don't need a bigger engine. A specialist called Stephen Curtis is going to do...

    Hello all, Does anyone know anything about the E28 that is being advertised on eBay for £8950 by Knightcott Motors? The owner seems to have a history of fraud and the car seems very expensive. They don't come up often however but is 8950 way over the top? I hear it has been up for sale for 8...
