New here with an e28 535i

Recommended Posts

Howdy, 

After owning many makes and models over the years I’ve found myself in my second BMW - a 535i and am really enjoying it...

 

Found it on FB marketplace and always had a soft spot for this chassis so I snapped it up and bonus that it’s a 535. 
 

Right now I’m needing to replace the front shocks-any recommendations for suppliers here? 

 

Im also toying with the idea of doing a manual conversion. Any leads on parts appreciated..cheers!

very nice , i think i know that car , last few owners etc , we also had a green one just like it many many years ago 

manual swap parts hard to come by now.

and to be honest i probably wouldnt bother now with doing a swap on one of these 

shocks , try fcp etc , bilstein etc

There was an m30 (e34?) engine/gearbox on TM just recently that I should have jumped on. 
 

I’m wanting something fun to drive that after brakes etc have been gone through I can take on the track, so for me seems like a good option

Great choice. While brake technology has moved on the e28 brakes were used on the e30 M3 , I believe too.

Did I mention you will get to know/make many new friends when you stop on your trips.

Take care out there.
