Just 12k kilometers on this top of the range E28 5-series
The E28-Series is considered by many, including myself, as an iconic BMW and a great 5-series. It combines a very comfortable 4-door sedan, elegant 80’s BMW-styling and a great driving experience thanks to a superb engine and suspension.
The car came to the market in 1981, in 1985 the bigger 3,4L liter models came (535i(s), M535i and M5), up til then the 528i was the fastest E28 5-series one could have. In the private collection of a French BMW dealer we have found this E28 528i with just 12.133 kilometers almost completely original paint. What a find!
The BMW 528i was first registered on the18th of October 1982. The car was ordered in a very nice spec. 060 Polaris Silver, green tinted windows and Navy blue velours w/ Herringbone (M30 specific) interior. 4 electric windows, 4 headrests, original BMW floormats and BBS TRX wheels. The spare wheel is the same with the Michelin TRX sticker will on it.
The original owner traded the car in for a new 5-series, somewhere in the 90’s. The car has been in the storage of a French BMW dealer for many many years. It was stored dry and wasn’t driven, recently the car was discovered again and made fit again for driving. The condition is amazing. A beautiful rust-free body with perfect panelgaps. Perfectly straight and very original paint. The undercarriage is as-new: Hardly driven, yet 40 years old. Undercarriage and axles present in their factory coating.
The engine-bay is beautiful as well. Still a deep yellow color on the passivated hardware. The airfilter housing is deep black and scratch free. The orange BMW sticker is still on the original spot on the washerfluid-container (which is still nice and clear). The correct rubber flaps are mounted over the air-ducts. The cover over the fusebox looks new, which it is, but 40 years old.
The trunk is just as original and perfect. Very clean upholstery and mat. The tools tray is clean and complete. The original jack has never been used. Just like the 5th BBS TRX spare-wheel, complete with Michelin sticker from new. In the trunk is also the BMW original suitcase for spare-parts.
The interior of the car is ofcourse 100% – as one may expect with 12k kilometers. I’ve never felt a steering wheel with this grip and texture, as is the shifter. I’ve never felt a seat this firm, yet soft. The carpets are clean, the headliner is untouched, the floormats are as new. All ash-trays have never been used as is the cigarette lighter. No usermarks on the strips, original doorjambs. Using the stalks for indicator and wipers is very convincing: never felt them this tight. A true time capsule.
So is the driving experience. Having driven many E28’s – i was blown away. So smooth, so silent, so easy. The suspension is firm, it hardly lean in corners – with original suspension. The engine is very smooth and silent. The 5-speed shifts easier than any other and is silent, so is the differential. Never felt the steering rack this tight. The typical BMW feel of sportiness combined with comfort is on a higher level here.
