Well after a nice long look on what the internet has to offer for a 1987 528e, I decided that there was enough parts out there to make it look very sporty. Unfortunately i cant get the bekker seats i wanted because it would ruin the interiour design (everything is beige, bekker seats are black). I found a nice front spoiler and some actual nice parts @ www.kormanfastbmw.com. I am a body mechanic and can personally paint it any colors i want to, also any design so i was wondering what you would do to this car as suggestions. Please send design idea paint designs pictures or color suggestions or any opinions at all. ( I was thinking about putting an aggressive spoiler on, is that a euro car no no?) thanks!

Man... i love that car... sweeeet choice! friend of mine has a recently repainted black (sry i dont really kno wut kind of black!) Ill try to get a pic of it and post it for u... I wouldnt go for tooo agressive of a spoiler/aerokits, just subtle stuff to make it look very balanced allaround. Good performance upgrade to start would be to chip it... not sure which brands u should look at but shop around a bit... .bavauto is a great shop u should def. look into for ur 528. Welcome to forums, and good luck with ur sweet new ride man!

Thanks, I'll keep the post updated with pictures from whatever I do to it. Im gonna get my seat re-upholstered to save some cash. Ill try to go as subtle as I can with the modifications but for colors i was thinking like a gold with white details because the interior is so cream colored and not dark.

I was thinking of a cool forest green paint to go along with your interior.

I'll photoshop some pictures for you tonight, so we can see what it would look like with some changes such as new rims, lowering, new paint etc.

i'll post in a few hours, since i am doing history homework now.

I'm liking it. Good job! The rims/wheels/lowering make a huge difference.

How about with that deep blue I've seen on some M3's?

Maybe take the front license plate off and put medium tint on the back/rear windows (not too dark). And a small spoiler on the rear.

Damn that was one PIMP paintshop. It actaully looks nice, but we need a new front spoiler, perhaps an M bumper?

here it is with some tint on the back windows..

could not add a front spoiler/bumper... tried to add the M bumper, but couldnt make it fit right so i gave up also the back spoiler looked very gay. I'll do it one day when i find a nice one.

Nice job. Try some simpler rims some time.
You could probably make some $ doing this for various mods for people who are thinking about upgrading their ride.
