85 AlpinWeiß 535i Project Build! *LOTS O PICS* updated 5/20

Well I have had many BMWs before starting this project.

To start I bought:

1. 04 330CI ZHP. (lm reps, st coilovers, angel eyes, projector fogs, slotted/drilled rotors & more)





2. 98 Darkar E36 M3 (stock)



3. 99 AlpinWeiß Dinan Supercharged M3







I finally sold them all and decided I wanted to get an older BMW. Ive always loved them since my dads e30 when I was like 7. So I looked and looked and tossed up between an e30 and e28. After driving them and looking around I finally decided on an e28, because its a little less maintstream then e30 and I had some cool ideas in the making.

I picked up an 85 AlpinWeiß on maroon 5spd. An old man owned it. I am the 3rd owner. Originally its from texas, then a man from nc bought it and let his daughter drive it for college. I have ALL the original maint records, stamps in the service book, and even original window sticker. Absolutely nothing is wrong with it, runs like a champ! very little rust, but she is going to get painted anyways.

when i bought her: (PS i got her for $1800 bucks!)





First thing i did was pick up some euro bumpers. Thank you Grey Ghost.

euro vs us bumper




Moved her down to Savannah!





First thing I did was take off the wheels. It had 15" BBS wheels on it, i know their not stock but when took them off found they had REAL bmw stamped 18mm spacers..weird



Next removed those ugly mud flaps


Time to remove the Suspension!! Havent really decided on the setup yet. Just know im going to do coilovers. Leaning towards the spax/gc setup. i want to go lowwww.







Removed all trim, side mirrors and little hood vents



Next Removed taillights to get rid of those ugly yellow sections



WHAAAALAAA


And now im ripping apart the whole front. Still waiting to buy euro headlights and valance, but taking apart everything and giving it a GOOOOD cleaning



been slammed at work, doing 60 hour weeks havent really had time to toy with the bmw...plus waiting for my euro headlights to come in from netherlands


here is a crude mockup with the euro bumpers on. i still have to get them sand blasted and powdercoated



not my e28..but a pic of my GTI in tampa this weekend



finally got my euro headlights in. thanks ivo



threw them on real quick, still need to clean them up paint grills etc etc



typical battery dead...

lowered the front..onto the rear then sand blasting euro bumpers





lowered

Loving the red tails!

What's the difference with the euro and US headlights? The euro ones just seem to have a bigger low beam bowl..
