On the Baron auction site a lot appeared with a 33-year-old BMW M5 in the back of the E28. It is one of two right-hand drive cars with a body color in a special color from the BMW Individual catalog and a special set of interior options.

The car was used as a press machine, so from the factory it was painted in a unique black and blue metallic. The previous owner worked in the BMW diagnostic center, so he approached the appearance of his car with special attention and almost immediately after the purchase it was completely disassembled and re-painted in its native color. He also wanted to make his E28 as close as possible to the factory condition, so the hood, front fenders, front and rear bumpers, front and rear windows, two doors, all exterior lining, nameplates and more replaced with new original parts.

The car’s interior is trimmed in red leather, the roof is made of red suede. Also equipped with a sunroof with electric drive, power seats, rear window blinds and rear headrests. After painting the body, the former owner began to collect the car back, replacing each light bulb, button, lever with the slightest signs of scuffing or any other defects.

When the work on the restoration of the appearance were completed, the owner began to “insides” of the car. He completely went through the engine, replacing every gasket, nut or bolt with new ones. The wiring, the timing chain, the idling valve, and many other details that the owner found insufficiently new were also replaced. In the end, he wanted to get a car with a “podkapotkoy”, which looks as if the car had just left the dealership, so in addition repainted the engine compartment and replaced everything that was there.

The E28 was launched in 1986 and was used as the BMW press car. In addition to the car itself, the new owner will receive the original service book with notes about each repair, starting with the first inspection in 1986 and ending with the last service last October. All car owners kept records of the work done and, moreover, kept all the checks for every detail installed in the car.
