Here we have what must be one of the best E28’s available, this one is one of the very sought after 525e models.
If you are looking for an outstanding E28, you will not be disappointed by this car.
Starting with the bodywork and paintwork. The colour is Bahama Beige Metallic, which is a very rare colour and looks fantastic, really suiting the E28 shape. On this car the paintwork is excellent and as for the bodywork, there is absolutely no rust on this car. All arches are factory solid metal etc, looking down the sides, across the bonnet and boot, there are no noticeable dings or dents, it really is in remarkable condition.
This excellent condition continues underneath. There is absolutely no rust under hear and its all been protected by clear under seal. The last time this car was up on a ramp the inspector commented that this was by far the best condition E28 he had seen, the underneath really is like new. Other things you notice under hear is no expense has been spared. There exhaust has been replaced, with a new, quality BMW item, which still looks in excellent condition.
This example comes with Chrome bumpers and window trims. Its all in lovely condition, it shows this car has always been stored correctly.
The BMW BBS alloys have been recently refurbished, so are in excellent shape, with no curbing etc. All the tyres are also as new.
Now we come to the inside. This again has been looked after extremely well, its as good as you will find on an E28. The cloth seats have not worn, and are still very comfortable and supportive. The deep pile carpets have been protected from new by quality BMW overmats, so are still in as new condition. The BMW overmats themselves are in excellent shape. Look around this lovely interior, the dash has no splits, everything works and performs as its should, all the dials and switches light up at night as they should, the heater fan works on all settings. Lastly there is a lovely period Blaupunkt stereo, with still lights up and works as it should.
Look inside the engine bay, its again been cared for very well. The engine has not been steam cleaned, yet still looks amazingly fresh. The paintwork around the engine bay cleans up almost as well as the outside of the car. Look closer, even the attachments and brackets that normally suffer from surface rust at this age, all look just as fresh. Even the BMW soundproofing under the bonnet is all in place, which is quite rare now.
Inside the boot, its all dry and as it should be. The rear boot seal and light seals have all been replaced, to it should remain nice and dry.
The E28 525e is a sought after model as it was a very clever piece of engineering, ahead of its time. Basically is used a 2.7 straight six engine, but it was designed for torque and fuel economy rather than outright power. This technology really works, this example is showing 32 mpg in normal daily use and the power delivery from this engine and gearbox is lovely and smooth. These 525e’s are lovely to drive and this example drives particularly well.
The service history with this car is just about as good as you will ever find on a car. From the original Sales Invoice and Order forms, Brochures, Every single service receipt, Every MOT, All the original manuals, A fully stamped service book. We even have a small book, detailing fuel consumption and fuel used at every fill up, notes on maintenance from the original owner of 22 years.
If you are looking for a classic BMW, maybe as an investment, or to take to shows etc, or just to enjoy at the weekend, you will be hard pressed to find a more original, interesting example than this lovely E28.
It will come with a new MOT, its ready to be enjoyed now !
