New Wheels (for me)

Hi
I just bought a 1983 525e for a restoration project. The wheels it had, were 15.5 Rim, so I search and found 4 wheels with tires from a breaker, for $200.



I got other wheels yesterday that were from a series 3 car, and they didn't fit. Thankfully they exchanged them with 5 series wheels (I was lucky they had them).
My car is in the shop getting new front shocks and a full front suspension renovation.

Regards

Jose Gonzalez

because you love those models so much, or because you cannot afford a new one?

Kind of a dumb question. I for one wouldn't buy a car I don't like. Let alone restore it.

Thanks, I'll post pics of the progress, since I'm pretty sure there are a lot of e28 fans, specially the euro version.
