Mineral blue, likely one of two left
Predictably, as I do with all classic cars, I spend a fortune improving them then get bored and decide to have something else.
There used to be three mineral blue e28s left in the UK, most recently this has reduced to two, of which mine is one.
This has had around £10k (I think more like £12k) spent since I bought it some two years ago. I have receipts.
1. Professional cloth retrim (velour no longer available so next best match to BMW range of fabrics and patterns) £1600
2. New s/s exhaust and manifold gasket change
3. Substantial service by Clayton cars including having all the brake lines totally re done as the previous fitting a year earlier wasn't straight enough to my eyes. £1600
4. Jacking points welded (they all fail on these cars)
5. Endless amounts of replaced trim, sound deadening etc
6. Dash replaced with crack free example.
7. Dinitrol application to underside and cavities
8. New alternator (BMW charged some £600), PS hoses, battery, fuel lines.
9. Appropriate very period looking stereo but capable of Bluetooth etc.
10. Recent immobiliser.
Not in a rush to sell, it is safely garaged and up together. Looking for an owner who will carry on where I left off, keeping the car absolutely standard. If one isn't found then that's ok.
A few months MOT left, from memory 4.
Tiny scab of rust on one wheelarch and sunroof - and around a number plate light which is hidden from view
Odd scratches here and there (a flat polish would resolve)
Boot carpet upstand behind lights tatty
Odds and ends eg slight dent to rear bumper but generally inconsequential.
If I am to keep it I will get the wheelarch attended to and I would probably have the black sills taken back, re stone chipped and a satin black paint applied to give this otherwise vulnerable area protection.
I have NOS coachlines which haven't been fitted yet.
The car receives an amazing amount of interest from the wider public.
