82 bagged e28

So i haven't posted here in a while, e46fanatics was my home for a while. Thought i would share this with ya.

So Christmas of 2012 i bought myself this pretty nice 82 528e. Car was running and driving but the tags were out. It's the perfect color combo i wanted.



And i towed it home.



Unfortunatley it sat for a year while i was working on other things, i just drove it around the back country roads every now and then.




Then the time came to put it on the road. I did all the maintenance like timing belt and water pump. Also at this time decided to do a brake upgrade, Mercedes lights and coilovers and stainless brake lines.

I had been tired of the coilover ride quality for a while so i had been gathering parts for my air setup. I ended up using mk6 front bags and struts and universal stuff from air lift for the rear. Air lift v2 management ended up rounding it out. I don't really have any pics from install, basically cutting and welding. Lets get to the results.

First air out.





This is my ride height.



Some more random pics.







I am no where near done with it, i will update this thread when progress has been made.

The front skirt is a little slanted forward because the bumper is tucked. Don't worry, there won't be any US bumpers there pretty soon.

On the 80s euro cars, the yellows are the way to go.
Looks like you have a solid ride! Congrats man.
