    E28 1987 M535i e28 on behalf

    Hmmm yes interested as E28 m535i is top of my classic list - but i wasn't planning on commencing a project! Does it have all 4 of the BBS or is one missing.....? is there mould in the interior? Might give you a shout.

    Yip. Theyโ€™d also ripped off the steering column surround, but left the wheel which worked out ok.

    I see this all too often unfortunately. Someone destroys about 5 parts trying to get the 1 part they want.

    Hmmm this would save me a lot of ballache re: my Sportster CS / M Rain project. I read in your M3 plog that at least one seat is complete - assume the other still needs retrimming to the same?

    The all-new BMW 8 Series Coupe

    Do you think there will be a M8? Also curious what price you think the new 8 series will sell for.

    The all-new BMW 8 Series Coupe

    Yes but for those front grilles - non proportioned to me!

    I was there twice last week, first time with no tools for some side indicators, went back the next day and someone had tried to get the window reg out and failed, plus smashed glass all over the seat. And then I missed a Boston green msport front bumper with splitter by 10 min, doh!

    Oh, and I like to treat the old girl well. A new oil filter (obviously) and the prescribed amount of Penrite HPR5 5w40 was used to fill her up but before that I threw 8 litres of this through the system to flush it out until it ran golden (edit: no filter, sump plug hand tight, tip in 4l and start/idle the car for 15 seconds, drain 3l, add the remaining 4l, run car for 60 seconds, drain it all). $20 for 4 litres from Repco at 50% off and I can't complain... and it's called "Ultraclean" so it must be good at cleaning...

    I'm afraid not but all the front seats are interchangeable, only the rears and door cards differ. A set of front seats from a wrecker are ~$80, If I were looking for a sedan interior I'd want to check out that M3 sedan Brent has... not sure what's still available but matching nappa leather seats and door cards would be a good score. M3 (nappa) leather is so much better quality than non-M3 leather it's really quite amazing. Sedan stuff is also normally way less expensive than coupe stuff (a set of 4 good condition coupe cards is $400+ whereas sedan cards, still from an M3, should be around $200). Sedan front seats from an M3? $250, Vaders from a coupe? $600+. I do have a big role of brand new M Rain upholstery for anybody kicking off a project.... and some incomplete Recaro SR3's for an E30/6...

    The all-new BMW 8 Series Coupe

    Pretty much, yes. The 6 series will now be the "Gran Tourismo" body style only. 8 Series will feature the coupe shown, and then the cabrio early next year.

    You don't happen to have any of those cool interiors for a sedan?

    The all-new BMW 8 Series Coupe

    Does this replace the 6 series appearing in the new generation line up?

    Okay, so @Palazzo's post above confused me... I'm not sure if it means that Zebra Onehunga has more broken windows than other parts places? But I went back today to pick up another passenger seat cushion to put into the driver's side (less wear) and low and behold that second car was full of broken glass! Coincidence or have you been there recently Scott? Anyway, the 328 is running again now after the fine weather on the weekend allowed me to complete the job. Lining up a subframe and steering rack by yourself on your back isn't the easiest of jobs I can assure you! It's running fine and holding oil pressure so that's good but I think there's a leak so I'll have to hoist it up again and have a look. Hopefully it's something simple like the sump plug just not being tight enough. Somewhat more dramatically, about 15 mins into my test drive and the throttle stuck open! Brakes aren't good enough to fight that and I had to shut the car down. Sorry to all those around me that had to deal with me dealing with that! Pulled over somewhere safe and checked the obvious things, throttle cable working fine... hmm. Walked home (lucky my test drive was circuits of my neighbourhood), put the tools in the M3 and headed back out. Took the intake pipes off and found a rubber gasket stuck in the throttle butterfly holding it open. It's a gasket that I did take out when I took it apart to do the sump and I put back in the same place assuming that it belongs where I took it from... problem is that the gasket doesn't belong there at all. Somebody had obviously worked on it in the past, put it all back together, had that gasket left over and just bunged it where it fit. It's actually a valve cover oil filler gasket... ๐Ÿ˜• So gasket now removed from butterfly and car running fine again.

    The all-new BMW 8 Series Coupe

    Nicer than the concept pictures for sure! But it does look a lot like a stretched and squashed 2 series coupe or something though... not very E31 8 series like which was significantly different from the rest of the BMW range in 1990. I guess they wanted to play it safe like all brands do, just making the same looking cars with different proportions and body styles. BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Porsche, Lexus are obsessed with that brand model uniformity. I get it, but as far as new designs go, it kills anything creative
