RC says: Like a fi ne wine the #BMW-E28 / #BMW / is a car that’s only got better with age. To be fair nowadays it’s pretty hard to believe that it was regarded as something of an ugly duckling in the ‘80s and early ‘90s, even Martin himself says that he had a mate who had one back in the day and he couldn’t quite fathom why he liked it so much.
Of course, with the benefit of a few years passing, we all know that these have become perhaps the ultimate in retro-chic motorway cruising, although there’s still not many out there that have been lavished with love as much as this super-clean #1985 #BMW-525i here. In fact, it’s nothing short of admirable how much time, effort and hard-earned cash Martin has put into the build. One thing’s for sure - it certainly takes a lot of work to look this effortlessly cool!
After travelling from Northampton to London to pick up a totally stock model, countless hours have gone into uprating parts and sourcing some seriously rare trinkets from #BMW-tuning icons like #Zender and #AC-Schnitzer . The idea was to build the ultimate retro autobahn stormer and we reckon he’s nailed it!
