Bob Mattison


"This is my 1980 528i 5 speed that I've had for 7 years. It is mostly original except for lowering springs, and a Fittipaldi steering wheel. It has BBS 14 inch basketweave wheels. The paint and the interior is original, but I added sheepskin seat covers on the front for comfort. The odometer was not working when I bought it so the mileage is somewhat unknown. It reads 160K but probably has closer to 175K on it. When I had the odometer repaired I also had the speedometer updated to 140 MPH (originally had 85 MPH speedo). Only major repair was a head replacement a few years ago."
