i figured i'd start a thread for my e28.
it all started about two years ago when i bought another 535is. it didn't look any good to me at first, but i aimed to change that.
bought some new parts:
Gotti's 16x7.5 +16 front, 16x8 +10 rear
B&G 1.4" lowering springs and Bilstein HD shocks and struts
threw it all on the car and it turned out a pretty good (shitty iphone pictures)
i cut the springs a bit more, swapped in some euro headlights, put some 7" hella fog lights on the roof rack, sucked in the bumpers, and stripped them, and decided to get rid of that IS valance and get something with a chin
i branded her
i finally got tired of the bumpy ride from the cut springs and started to look around for some coilovers at a decent price. most coilovers for the e28 were pricey, but i found some nex's that were surprisingly reasonable. i read a story or two about how bad they were, but some e34 guys seemed to like them alot so i figured i'd give them a shot.
they looked good quality wise, so i proceeded to install...
threw my ireland engineering street camber plates on
cut and welded the fronts
put a skidplate on for more protection
i drove the car on coils for about a month and i was very impressed with the ride quality and i'm glad to say nothing has broke on me, but shortly after the car sat why i was traveling around the east coast and such. i did happen to pick something up for it on the way back though...
17x8 fronts and 17x11 rears 5x130 porsche etoiles/gottis
i had to get these on immediately! so i bought some 20mm adapters and went for it.
the fronts fit fine with no problem, but i will admit the need to be pushed out a bit more
but the backs needed some massaging.
grabbed a fender roller for a buddy and attacked that fender, and i don't think i did to badly for my first time.
but finally got her on back on all fours and looking better than i could imagine
the other day i went to drain the oil from over 5 months of sitting and a shit ton of coolant came out first... dammit
so thats where i'm at today, currently taking the head off and replacing the gasket and some other small stuff. gonna get this thing back on the road and keep getting it ready for SOWO this year, can't fucking wait.
