1988 BMW E28 528e

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1988 BMW E28 "527is." This build began with a very clean, southern, rust-free 528e "super eta" in largely original paint with reasonable mileage, clean CarFax and all vin tags in place -- starting with excellent bones was a top priority. From there the car was transformed; an extensive build sheet is provided but we'll touch on the highlights. Nearly every mechanical system has been replaced or rebuilt along with a cosmetic refurbishment.

The engine was built into a 2.7 liter "M20 B27" using the super eta block and a 2.5i head. The build included an Ireland Engineering 284 cam, Cometic head gasket, ARP head bolts, RHD individual throttle bodies, Megasquirt engine management and Innovate wide band O2. Of course it also got a valve job / top end rebuild with reinforced rockers, timing belt, cooling system rebuild, and a bottom end reseal. A five-speed Getrag 260 transmission was installed along with new mounts, clutch and hydraulics, driveshaft and shift linkage. It is mated to a 3.25:1 limited slip differential with new mounts and new cv axles. The build also included a front big-brake upgrade, hoses and rebuilt rear brakes.

Bilstien B8 dampers and Ground Control Coilovers were fitted and most suspension and steering components were replaced. Beautiful Style 5 17-inch BBS wheels were installed with custom center caps; they are wearing nearly new tires.

Cosmetic refurbishment / upgrades included Euro headlights, BMP bumpers, reupholstered seats (in leather) with front Recaro sport seats, E12 door handles. A mostly crack-free dash was also installed along with a nice M-tech steering wheel.

This car runs, drives and sounds fantastic. The chassis is superbly balanced and feels remarkably tight -- free of creaks, rattles or other unpleasantries. The M20 is peaky and strong with a great intake note, not to mention that it looks like jewelry when you open the hood. As clean, rust-free, reasonable mileage E28s become increasingly hard to find we appreciate cars as solid as this one and the time and money invested to turn it into something really special. Build sheet, dyno numbers and complete tools are included.
